Ist Open Innovation bloß eine Modeerscheinung oder steckt mehr dahinter? Viele Unternehmensbeispiele belegen heute, dass dieser Ansatz, wenn er richtig organisiert wird, ein Quantensprung für das Innovationsmanagement bedeuten kann. Die Grundidee ist dabei einfach: Statt nur seine internen Kapazitäten zu nutzen, versucht das Unternehmen, über seine Grenzen hinaus gezielt externe Kompetenzen in die Produktentwicklung einzubinden. Und umgekehrt kann es nach neuen Absatzmöglichkeiten suchen, um seine eigenen (ungenutzten) Ideen und Technologien auch außerhalb seines angestammten Geschäftsbereichs zu verwerten. Damit Unternehmen Open Innovation praktizieren können, benötigen sie allerdings geeignete Prozesse, Methoden und Systeme. Zudem erfordert der Ansatz eine Anpassung der Unternehmenskultur und -kommunikation. Vor diesem Hintergrund geht das Buch der Frage nach, wie Open Innovation in der Praxis realisiert und gelebt wird, und stellt dabei neueste Erkenntnisse sowie nützliche Informationen zu dem Thema zur Verfügung. Dabei werden wissenschaftliche Fachbeiträge und praxisnahe Best-Practice-Beispiele namhafter Experten anschaulich miteinander verknüpft. Neben einer allgemeinen Einführung ins Thema werden u.a. folgende Aspekte behandelt: - Potenziale und Einsatzfelder von Open Innovation, - Risiken und Hindernisse, - Technology Orchestration, - Systematische Cross Industry Innovation, - Prozesssteuerung durch ”Inno-Netzwerke“, - Kultur und Kommunikation im Open-Innovation-Kontext. Zielgruppe sind Entscheidungsträger aus den Bereichen F&E, Innovationsmanagement, Marketing, Strategie, ebenso wie für Forscher und Studenten.

One of the most important books of the twentieth century, Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies is an uncompromising defense of liberal democracy and a powerful attack on the intellectual origins of totalitarianism. Popper was born in 1902 to a Viennese family of Jewish origin. He taught in Austria until 1937, when he emigrated to New Zealand in anticipation of the Nazi annexation of Austria the following year, and he settled in England in 1949. Before the annexation, Popper had written mainly about the philosophy of science, but from 1938 until the end of the Second World War he focused his energies on political philosophy, seeking to diagnose the intellectual origins of German and Soviet totalitarianism. The Open Society and Its Enemies was the result. An immediate sensation when it was first published in two volumes in 1945, Popper's monumental achievement has attained legendary status on both the Left and Right and is credited with inspiring anticommunist dissidents during the Cold War. Arguing that the spirit of free, critical inquiry that governs scientific investigation should also apply to politics, Popper traces the roots of an opposite, authoritarian tendency to a tradition represented by Plato, Marx, and Hegel. In a substantial new introduction written for this edition, acclaimed political philosopher Alan Ryan puts Popper's landmark work in biographical, intellectual, and historical context. Also included is a personal essay by eminent art historian E. H. Gombrich, in which he recounts the story of the book's eventual publication despite numerous rejections and wartime deprivations.

Die Fähigkeit zur Innovation ist seit jeher ein wichtiger Hebel für den Erfolg eines Unternehmens. Nur durch ein funktionierendes Innovationsmanagement können sich Unternehmen an verändernde Märkte und an den technischen Fortschritt anpassen. Jedoch stoßen gerade kleine und mittlere Unternehmen mehr und mehr an ihre Grenzen. Gesättigte Märkte, ständig neue Kundenwünsche und steigender Wettbewerbsdruck stellen Unternehmen zunehmend vor neue Herausforderungen. Gerade kleine Unternehmen sind jedoch selten in der Lage, dem komplexen Bereich der Innovationsgenerierung gerecht zu werden. Es besteht also ein dringender Handlungsbedarf, Wachstumspotenziale zu erkennen und erfolgreich umzusetzen. Die Öffnung des Innovationsprozesses über die Unternehmensgrenzen hinaus bietet Unternehmen die Möglichkeit, zusätzlich zu den internen Resourcen auch auf Wissen, Erfahrungen, Kompetenzen und Technologien zurückgreifen zu können. Dieses Vorgehen wird als "Open Innovation" bezeichnet. Open Innovation beschreibt den Innovationsprozess als einen offenen Such- und Lösungsprozess zwischen mehreren Akteuren über die Unternehmensgrenzen hinaus. Externe Akteure werden als Ideengeber oder Konzeptentwickler in die Gestaltung von Innovationen eingebunden. Open Innovation basiert dabei auf dem Gedanken, dass - egal wie viele kluge, kreative und innovative Köpfe in einem Unternehmen beschäftigt sind - es immer mehr kluge, kreative und innovative Köpfe außerhalb des Unternehmens gibt.

Much of the innovative programming that powers the Internet, creates operating systems, and produces software is the result of "open source" code, that is, code that is freely distributed--as opposed to being kept secret--by those who write it. Leaving source code open has generated some of the most sophisticated developments in computer technology, including, most notably, Linux and Apache, which pose a significant challenge to Microsoft in the marketplace. As Steven Weber discusses, open source's success in a highly competitive industry has subverted many assumptions about how businesses are run, and how intellectual products are created and protected. Traditionally, intellectual property law has allowed companies to control knowledge and has guarded the rights of the innovator, at the expense of industry-wide cooperation. In turn, engineers of new software code are richly rewarded; but, as Weber shows, in spite of the conventional wisdom that innovation is driven by the promise of individual and corporate wealth, ensuring the free distribution of code among computer programmers can empower a more effective process for building intellectual products. In the case of Open Source, independent programmers--sometimes hundreds or thousands of them--make unpaid contributions to software that develops organically, through trial and error. Weber argues that the success of open source is not a freakish exception to economic principles. The open source community is guided by standards, rules, decisionmaking procedures, and sanctioning mechanisms. Weber explains the political and economic dynamics of this mysterious but important market development. Table of Contents: Preface 1. Property and the Problem of Software 2. The Early History of Open Source 3. What Is Open Source and How Does It Work? 4. A Maturing Model of Production 5. Explaining Open Source: Microfoundations 6. Explaining Open Source: Macro-Organization 7. Business Models and the Law 8. The Code That Changed the World? Notes Index Reviews of this book: In the world of open-source software, true believers can be a fervent bunch. Linux, for example, may act as a credo as well as an operating system. But there is much substance beyond zealotry, says Steven Weber, the author of The Success of Open Source...An open-source operating system offers its source code up to be played with, extended, debugged, and otherwise tweaked in an orgy of user collaboration. The author traces the roots of that ethos and process in the early years of computers...He also analyzes the interface between open source and the worlds of business and law, as well as wider issues in the clash between hierarchical structures and networks, a subject with relevance beyond the software industry to the war on terrorism. --Nina C. Ayoub, Chronicle of Higher Education Reviews of this book: A valuable new account of the [open-source software] movement. --Edward Rothstein, New York Times We can blindly continue to develop, reward, protect, and organize around knowledge assets on the comfortable assumption that their traditional property rights remain inviolate. Or we can listen to Steven Weber and begin to make our peace with the uncomfortable fact that the very foundations of our familiar "knowledge as property" world have irrevocably shifted. --Alan Kantrow, Chief Knowledge Officer, Monitor Group Ever since the invention of agriculture, human beings have had only three social-engineering tools for organizing any large-scale division of labor: markets (and the carrots of material benefits they offer), hierarchies (and the sticks of punishment they impose), and charisma (and the promises of rapture they offer). Now there is the possibility of a fourth mode of effective social organization--one that we perhaps see in embryo in the creation and maintenance of open-source software. My Berkeley colleague Steven Weber's book is a brilliant exploration of this fascinating topic. --J. Bradford DeLong, Department of Economics, University of California at Berkeley Steven Weber has produced a significant, insightful book that is both smart and important. The most impressive achievement of this volume is that Weber has spent the time to learn and think about the technological, sociological, business, and legal perspectives related to open source. The Success of Open Source is timely and more thought provoking than almost anything I've come across in the past several years. It deserves careful reading by a wide audience. --Jonathan Aronson, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Southern California

In his gripping and provocative debut, anthropologist Jason De León sheds light on one of the most pressing political issues of our time—the human consequences of US immigration policy. The Land of Open Graves reveals the suffering and deaths that occur daily in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona as thousands of undocumented migrants attempt to cross the border from Mexico into the United States. Drawing on the four major fields of anthropology, De León uses an innovative combination of ethnography, archaeology, linguistics, and forensic science to produce a scathing critique of “Prevention through Deterrence,” the federal border enforcement policy that encourages migrants to cross in areas characterized by extreme environmental conditions and high risk of death. For two decades, this policy has failed to deter border crossers while successfully turning the rugged terrain of southern Arizona into a killing field. In harrowing detail, De León chronicles the journeys of people who have made dozens of attempts to cross the border and uncovers the stories of the objects and bodies left behind in the desert. The Land of Open Graves will spark debate and controversy.

The information revolution has made for a radically more fluid knowledge environment, and the growth of venture capital has created inexorable pressure towards fast commercialisation of existing technologies Companies that don't use the technologies they develop are likely to lose them. Key features Over the past several years, Hank Chesbrough has done excellent research and writing on the commercialisation of technology and the changing role and context for R&D. This book represents a powerful synthesis of that work in the form of a new paradigm for managing corporate research and bringing new technologies to market Chesbrough impressively articulates his ideas and how they connect to each other, weaving several disparate areas of work R&D, corporate venturing, spinoffs, licensing and intellectual property into a single coherent framework

Companies have to innovate to stay competitive, and they have to collaborate with other organizations to innovate effectively. Although the benefits of "open innovation" have been described in detail before, underlying mechanisms how companies can be successful open innovators have not be understood well. A growing community of innovation management researchers started to develop different frameworks to understand open innovation in a more systematic way. This book provides a thorough examination of research conducted to date on open innovation, as well as a comprehensive overview of what will be the most important, most promising and most relevant research topics in this area during the next decade. "Open Innovation: Researching a new paradigm" (OUP 2006) was the first initiative to bring open innovation closer to the academic community. Open innovation research has since then been growing in an exponential way and research has evolved in different and unexpected directions. As the research field is growing, it becomes increasingly difficult for young (and even experienced scholars) to keep an overview of the most important trends in open innovation research, of the research topics that are most promising for the coming years, and of the most interesting management challenges that are emerging in organizations practicing open innovation. In the spirit of an open approach to innovation, the editors have engaged other scholars and practitioners to contribute some of their interesting insights in this book.Companies have to innovate to stay competitive, and they have to collaborate with other organizations to innovate effectively. Although the benefits of "open innovation" have been described in detail before, mechanisms underlying how companies can be successful "open innovators" have not be understood well.
