|Don't Make it Harder Than it is|
Sometimes I think that people out there talking about innovation try and
make crafting a good innovation process sound harder than it is and the
work of making innovation happen sound easier than it really is.

their books or consulting services, I'm not sure, but let's give them
the benefit of the doubt and assume it's not.

|Seven Successful Open Innovation Practices|
Last year I (Caspar van Rijnbach) had the opportunity to visit or speak to 24 organizations
around the globe, for my research on open innovation practices. These
companies included Philips, Kodak, Nokia, Telefonica, Siemens, Xerox and
Dupont, but also highly innovative Brazilian firms such as Natura
(cosmetics) Embraco (world leader in refrigeration) and Petrobras (one
of the largest energy companies in the world) that have been
implementing very successful innovation practices. When doing such
research one always looks for good practices common between the
companies, but also for the practices that make them stand out or be
very successful through open innovation.
