Date of publication: November 19, 2009

Company: HYVE


This presentation provides insight into the open innovation and co-creation idea and describes a human-centred innovation approach with respect to the changing roles of market research and product design. The increased importance of strong interdisciplinary (internal) collaboration of researchers and designers for being successful in open innovation is emphasized. Only the combination of external co-creation and internal collaboration make open innovation programs successful. Embracing a human-centered innovation approach means also to intervene in existing structures of power within the company which are built upon hierarchy.
