Following the interest generated from the Open Your World forum held in May, opensource.com will present a series of webinars this fall. Topics will span openness and transparency across all five opensource.com channels: business, education, government, law and life. The webinar series kicks off on Wednesday, September 1 at 1:00 p.m. ET with a discussion on the open innovation revolution with Stefan Lindegaard.
Stefan is a thought leader and open innovation expert and recently published the book The Open Innovation Revolution. There are many commonalities between the open source way and the key concepts of open innovation. During the webinar, Stefan will
- Explain what open innovation is, and why more and more companies are adopting it;
- Share some essential elements that innovation leaders and intraprenuers need to put in place for open innovation initiatives to thrive;
- Highlight the people-related roadblocks that can impede open innovation and ways to overcome them; and
- Discuss some of the common themes between open innovation and open source and share ideas for how the two communities might learn from each other.
