Book Description

3 Feb 2011

Open innovation and crowd sourcing are the hottest topics in strategy and management today. The concept of capturing ideas in a hub of collaboration, together with the outsourcing of tasks to a large group of people or community is a revolution that is rapidly changing our culture. A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing explains how to use the power of the internet to build and innovate in order to introduce a consumer democracy that has never existed before. If a business fails to embrace it, it is at risk of being left behind.

Written by an international team of eminent thinkers, writers and practitioners in the field, A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing covers the definition of open innovation, how to manage virtual teams and co-create with customers, how to overcome legal and IP issues and common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid.

With corporate case studies and best practice advice, A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowd Sourcing is a vital read for anyone who wants to find innovative products and services from outside their organizations, make them work and overcome the practical difficulties that lie in the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 23 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
When a book on Open Innovation starts with a foreword from Henry Chesbrough, you know that you're in safe hands.
We all like this book in our office - there are various post-it notes from different analysts on various pages. I especially like it because it does what it "says on the tin" - it contains advice from leading experts, and contains really digestible information and advice. It's a "pick-up" book (you put it down, then you pick it up again), not the sort of book you read and then shelve. There's a really good list of experts /thought leaders answering key questions on OI e.g. what are the benefits, what are the risks, how to get started, how to measure progress, who do we need?).

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 16 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was my first contact with crowdsourcing and open innovation concepts of business approaches, techniques and examples.

Mr. Sloane did a terrific job, gathering all this useful information, and inspirational insights for people just interested in the subjects, for future entrepreneurs and innovators, for open Innovators and problem solving believers.

This book changed my ways of thinking business in the future, and motivated me to write a whole dissertation on how crowdsourcing is contribution to business innovation practises.

4.0 out of 5 stars A guide to Open Innovation and Crowd Sourcing 12 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
Great book with lots of examples of how open innovation and crowdsourcing is working and being used by a range of organisations. It also highlights some of the pitfalls if you are considering setting up your own crowdsourcing or open innovation process.

It is a mash up of different authors and writing styles which can be hard to follow at times. If there is another edition I'd recommend a good edit and a glossary to explain some of the jargon.

Practical guide and must read if you are considering this sort of innovation.
