Open innovation is an idiosyncratic and multi-faceted phenomenon that can hardly use as a universal tool or approach for all companies. The biggest question that most companies encountered is “Are they ready for this open innovation?” The Open Innovation Readiness Assessment Model (OIRAM) is developed to assess organization’s readiness level regarding the implementation of collective invention strategies and to assist them in opening their innovation logics. However, one thing that organizations need to be aware of, ready does not assure the success of the implementation process. It rather helps to be better prepared for it.

Nowadays, Business Ecosystem (BE) as an organizational form has become a strategic objective for a growing number of both SMEs and big firms. Innovation management improvement is the first explanation of this enthusiasm. However, to achieve this goal, actors involved in the process must overcome the multiple challenges associated with BE development. Among these issues, emancipation of inter-organizational relationships from cooperation to co-evolution appears of critical importance to build a collective innovation program. This explains the central role of open innovation in BE emergence. Therefore, help companies build their BE means supporting the implementation and management of collective innovation logics. In order to do so, scholars multiplies empirical analysis (case studies and qualitative approaches) to better understand the enhancement of inter-organizational relationships. What are the required conditions to generate a co-evolution process? What are the steps to bring actors to co-create innovations? Are open innovation logics sufficient to successfully emancipate inter-organizational relationships? All the answers will be discuss during the roundtable.

Imagine a world in which open innovation would be clearly understood and widespread among all companies around the world! In such a world crowded of open innovation black belts, open innovation would not be anymore a source of competitive advantage. In such a world, nurturing your business ecosystem would be the only enduring source of growth i.e. value creation. Indeed, the very purpose of business ecosystems is to nurture continuous and collective innovation. The concept of business ecosystem embraces various practices that are put under the umbrella of open innovation but it does not focus on how to make collective and/or open innovation (micro) but rather on how to allow innovation to happen (meso) within the ecosystem. If your ecosystem is healthy it will provide various spaces of opportunities for you and your partners and innovation will flourish everywhere. Thus, forget open innovation and focus on your business ecosystem!

Ultimately, the transition from creativity to innovation requires prototyping steps which are useful to test and try the feasibility of these new ideas. The flipped or reverse classroom is a good example of prototyping in the world of education. How is possible to transform new ideas of teaching into pedagogical innovation when institutions and their programs are build for academic methods ? Translating creativity into innovation depends of many things, including the transformation of the state of mind of people and their managerial organisation. So, understanding how pedagogical innovation is taking place in universities or schools is therefore a great source of inspiration for all companies and institutions.

Today Gen-Yers (aka Millennials) represent the largest segment of the global workforce, and in order for incumbent industries to fully realize this demographic dividend, they need to engage these young people in a total different way. Let's explore why Gamification, with it's transparency, scoring, and instant feedback mechanisms, is an effective framework in which to unlock the innovation potential of these talented digital natives.
