Implementing Open Innovation Beyond the Pilot Stage: Barriers and Organizational Interventions

document Open Innovation
Open Innovation has been demonstrated to be an effective strategy to enhance the efficiency of a firm's innovation process.
In this paper, they focus on broadcast search (also called tournament-based crowdsourcing), a method in the later stages of an innovation project directed to solve technical problems in form of an open call. Based on a design science approach and a longitudinal study of six companies engaged in piloting of open innovation, they identify barriers and sources of resistance that hinder its implementation in firms. The paper contributes to open innovation research by analyzing crowdsourcing on the level of pilot projects, hence providing a workflow perspective that considers the creation of dedicated processes and operations of crowdsourcing.
