As organizations are transitioning to increasingly open business models, open innovation has become an essential driver of growth. IBM and APQC have been researching open innovation for over a decade, allowing us to track the evolution of this capability at organizations across industries and regions. This has provided a comprehensive understanding of how ecosystems, as the primary operating lever for open innovation, have become key to success.

The objectives of this presentation are twofold:

  • Provide attendees insight into recent research on open innovation, highlighting findings around the capabilities required to enable collaborative value creation from strategic, cultural, operational, and technological perspectives.
  • Provide an overview of the new APQC and IBM Ecosystem Enabled Innovation Maturity Model (EEIMM) initiative – an opportunity for organizations to conduct a maturity assessment of their open innovation capabilities and receive a customized summary report benchmarking their practices against peers. This helps to identify opportunities to embrace an open approach to innovation and generating value.
