document Open Innovation
Through this OI pilot project, Eskom wanted to ascertain how well Eskom was doing with its own thinking in terms of innovative ideas compared to the innovation space outside Eskom’s boundaries, and was open to the discovery of truly innovative ideas.Two approaches to OI were available to Eskom, namely (i) develop and leverage a local OI eco-system; and(ii) tap into the global NineSigma OI network. The decision was to go with both approaches depending on the challenge. Eskom followed an OI project methodology with the following phases:(i) DEFINE;(ii) CONNECT; (iii) EVALUATE;and(iv) ACQUIRE;and aligned temporary committees to this OI methodology.
