"No matter who you are, most of the smartest peoplework for someone else” Bill Joy

This quote by Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy sums up beautifully the appeal of open innovation.

The concept, pioneered by Innocentive almost a decade ago, has really taken off in the past 18 months, with a whole host of commercial and scientific challenges solved by the crowd.

Despite the popularity of open innovation however, delivering a successful outcome remains a challenge.

This course exists to help you.  Here are some of the things you'll learn by taking this course:

Why you should attend this class

  • You will understand the different approaches to open innovation
