There's just a little more than a day left until our first Live Chat, a new interactive feature on Crowdsourcing.org. No downloads necessary, just visit our site and join in the conversation.
Here's some thoughts from Brightidea on the role it plays in powering open innovation to help jump-start the conversation:
- Companies are getting smarter about how they innovate. The rise of open innovation is a key indicator that companies realize that in order to stay competitive and fuel innovation, they must look outside for ideas on breakthrough technologies, to tap experts on-demand, and uncover customer needs and pain points.
- There are varying definitions of open innovation. From a purest standpoint, open innovation means acquiring external technologies, i.e. the transfer of technology. Broadened definitions of open innovation expand to include really any initiative that involves going outside your company to tap customers, partners and the general public for ideas on everything from new products to breakthrough technologies.
- Brightidea has powered some of the largest, most successful open innovation campaigns and on-going open innovation programs for over a decade with companies like GE and Adobe. With proven methodologies, and advanced crowdsouring and ideation development tools, Brightidea software continues to provide real results to companies engaging in open innovation around the globe.
Nicholas Selk, Director of Professional Services at Brightidea, will be taking your questions during the live chat. He is an innovation expert that advises Fortune 2000 companies on managing the full innovation lifecycle, from securing buy-in to campaign topics through advanced development and implementation processes.
