We were rereading an older piece from the Winter 2007 edition of the MIT Sloan Management Review called Why Companies Should Have Open Business Models.
Henry Chesbrough illustrates seemingly diverse cases where players "required an open business model in which an idea traveled from invention to commercialization through at least two different companies, with the different parties involved dividing the work of innovation."
We encourage you to review Chesbrough's piece carefully and consider how your organization could innovate faster and better employing such concepts.
