While most of us are trying to understand and incorporate the collaborative innovation in our organizations, there are some people and organizations that have experienced it already, it makes lot of sense to understand these cases and learn from it.
I am starting a sister blog http://spotopen.blogspot.com/ which will act as a repository of the success and failures in open innovation, collaborative innovation, co-creation from across the world.
Though the information going in these case studies is already available at various places on the internet, I am trying to achieve following.
1) Single point for reference.
2) Classify the case study information in a predefined format. (E.g. Industry, extent of openness etc.)
3) Uncover the finer and otherwise hidden aspects of these success or failure cases.
The format for the case study along with the first case study is posted at http://spotopen.blogspot.com/
Please feel free to suggest any changes or additions in the format.
You can also suggest a case study or point me to the case study.
