10 Indispensable open innovation platforms for bold global corporations




Welcome to an update of what proved to be a popular article looking at some great open innovation platforms. Innovation is crucial to survive in today’s disruptive and fast moving industrial and commercial landscape. It’s predicted that digital disruption will wipe out at least 40% of businesses in the next decade if they don’t adopt new technology, which usually also means new methods and requires a different management mindset. Companies can be quick to recognize risks associated with ignoring new technology. Though many decision-makers don’t know where to start when managing open innovation on a company-wide basis, or how to achieve a longingly hoped-for “agility at scale.”

Open innovation techniques, and specific innovation management software, help companies overcome these difficulties, offering an efficient way for new ideas to be collected, refined, implemented, and monitored in order to generate a quick ROI. These inputs can be solicited from employees, customers, social media followers, even the general public at large. There is a range of service and software providers gaining more and more experience in guiding businesses through the processes of leveraging external networks. This can include accessing specialist skills and flexibly scaling resources according to project pipeline demand. Here, we take a look at ten of the top open innovation platforms.
