CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Open Innovation describes an emergent model of innovation in which firms draw
on research and development that may lie outside their own boundaries. In some
cases, such as open source software, this research and development can take
place in a non-proprietary manner.
Henry Chesbrough and his collaborators investigate this phenomenon, linking
the practice of innovation to the established body of innovation research,
showing what's new and what's familiar in the process. Offering theoretical
explanations for the use (and limits) of open innovation, the book examines the
applicability of the concept, implications for the boundaries of firms, the
potential of open innovation to prove successful, and implications for
intellectual property policies and practices.
The book will be key reading for academics, researchers, and graduate students
of innovation and technology management.
