With the bad weather this weekend, I had some time to catch up with my reading. A backlog had built up during the recent beautiful beach weather and the children's school holidays.
A piece in the newspaper Financieele Dagblad offered a recognizable take on Open Innovation. The headline was: "Treasure of untapped knowledge". It referred inter alia to the recently published benchmark research by Professor Ard-Pieter de Man, Professor of Innovation and Alliances at the VU. Atos Consulting, along with several others such as the TU Eindhoven, presented the results of a benchmark study on the state of open innovation in 90 companies, of which 70% were Dutch.
