What the Hell Is a Weblog? And why leave me alone Will not They? By Derek M. Powazek

I fell in love with the web to long time in August It entered my bloodstream Like a virus, took root, and changed my life forever. And, Almost Immediately, the virus spread to HAD.

I made piles of homepages, the oldest of Which are lost forever in the digital ether. I did my college thesis online. I got a job in the biz. I started with lofty goals vague projects like “doing it right.” I cared too much.

The Open Innovation in the European Union (EU) environment

Everyone is being affected by this change from SMEs to Government organizations, but it seems that Europe has not changed enough.

R. Hudson says it takes:

– Focus on Excellence. If Europe wants to compete has to have the best research and ideas available.

– Focus on clusters. We need to focus resources on areas of high technology in order to attract bright students to its universities and companies for their rich business parks .

– Free SMEs. Small businesses are a major driver of ideas to the markets. We must encourage them financially.

– Buy smart. We need to provide the public services with the ability to purchase innovative products and services.

– Regulate smart. The setting is a sign of obligation and can lead to innovation.

Since 2009 it became clear that:

– It is essential to invest in new skills (people) and not only in technology (tools).

– The environmental concern is no longer exclusively green to be too gray and white in reference to creative thinking.

– “The new thinking” can be provided (with help), as is the case presented by Hudson, in terms of policies and regulations.

– The interdisciplinary team (economists, engineers, psychologists, designers, etc.) have guaranteed future. Everyone can create, conceptualize and implement ideas.

Contagious or by the law!

In November 2009 an EU Manifesto targeted focus on funding and the competences and could read:

“The ambassadors believe that a comprehensive innovation policy , along with increased investment in science, technology and design, will help make Europe more competitive . “

At that time Jean -Philippe Courtois, President Microsoft International, said that the future of Europe depends on the imagination of its people and urged political and business leaders to create a environment that encourages creative thinking.

He said that the technology has the potential to radically transform society and create new jobs, but investment in skills is essential.

“The acquisition of IT skills, for example, is as fundamental as reading and writing, “said Courtois, who spoke on behalf of the 27 ambassadors.” Leer más “The Open Innovation in the European Union (EU) environment”

What is Open Innovation? | Crowdsourcing? | User innovation? | Co-Creation?

What is co-creation? Here Wikipedia states that co-creation views markets as forums for firms and active customers to share, combine and renew each other’s resources and capabilities to create value through new forms of interaction, service and learning mechanisms. It differs from the traditional active firm – passive consumer market construct of the past. I like how C.K. Prahalad and Venkat Ramaswamy argue that “value will be increasingly co-created by the firm and the customer, they argued, rather than being created entirely inside the firm.”

These terms overlap which leaves plenty of room for confusion, but I hope this short overview helps.


By Stefan Lindegaard

Many people ask what open innovation is. I suggest that you should view open innovation as a philosophy or a mindset that you should embrace within your organization. In a more practical definition, open innovation is about bridging internal and external resources and act on those opportunities. The value proposition this gives companies that get it right is simply too good to miss out on.

I also like this quote from Henry Chesbrough; “Open innovation is a paradigm that assumes that firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as the firms look to advance their technology

This still leaves three other questions:

What is crowdsourcing? Wikipedia states that “crowdsourcing is the act of outsourcing tasks, traditionally performed by an employee or contractor, to a large group of people or community (a crowd), through an open call.” I view crowdsourcing as a tool that can be used to bring external input into your organizations.

What is user-driven innovation? I view this as a technique in which companies gain insights from users, which can then be used in the innovation process. I think that a key element in user-driven innovation is the observation of users rather than the use of questionnaires and focus groups. Erich von Hippel is an important influencer with his contributions on lead-user innovation. Leer más “What is Open Innovation? | Crowdsourcing? | User innovation? | Co-Creation?”
