Open Innovation Enablers: Seek Hands-On Support from and Exposure to Senior Leadership



APQC launched the Open Innovation: Enhancing Idea Generation Through Collaboration study 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 leadership of the best-practice organizations featured in the study is actively involved in open innovation. These individuals act as catalysts to motivate the rest of the organization to be more open to collaboration.
