Taking Open Innovation Management One Level Up

In this IM Channel One Concept Presentation, Prof. Henry Chesbrough, Prof. Wim Vanhaverbeke and Dr. Nadine Roijakkers present Project MOOI in detail and explain the benefits for managers and professionals that come from joining this new online project community.

MOOI is an online community of OI-professionals who want to collaborate in discussing, structuring, and qualifying best practices of “Managing and Organizing Open Innovation”.  It offers a platform to bring open innovation management one level up by examining, in a structured way, a new management challenge each month during one year. The insights developed around each management theme will be summarized in an e-book, which the Project Team – Prof. Henry Chesborugh, Prof. Wim Vanhaverbeke and Dr. Nadine Roijakkers – intend to publish mid 2014.
