Open Innovation needs personality: How can transformation succeed? The Openness Framework, Practices & Capabilities.

Complex challenges cannot be solved by individual actors alone. This is especially the case in new fields of innovation such as connected mobility, sustainable energy supply or digital health. A strategic opening of organizations with open innovation methods and practices that explicitly enable the exchange of knowledge and collaborative innovation, and thus a 360-degree perspective, can help. However, old structures often stand in the way of new meaning. A mindset shift – in organizations, but especially in individuals – is necessary. How can this succeed? In our workshop, we will present our Openness Framework, invite participants to examine themselves in terms of openness and discuss how a sustainable mindset shift can succeed in organizations and especially in themselves, because open innovation needs personality.
