Open Innovation Enablers: Focus on Open Innovation First, Then Find the Tools to Help



APQC conducted the study Open Innovation: Enhancing Idea Generation Through Collaboration to examine the open innovation practices of successful organizations. To increase the number of high-quality ideas sourced and generated, as well as to increase the speed of open innovation, the best-practice organizations in APQC's study embrace certain enabling practices. The adoption of these enablers is not in itself a best practice, but it furthers the success of open innovation efforts in conjunction with best practices.

The best-practice organizations featured in the study have adopted tools and software to facilitate their open innovation efforts. However, these organizations first fine-tuned their open innovation processes and then identified tools that would enhance these processes.
