Crowdsourcing for Innovation: Objective Factors and Subjective Realities
Natalia Levina, Dr. Associate Professor, Stern Business School at New York University

Natalia LevinaUnder intensifying competitive pressures, organizations are confronted with pressures to seek new ways of enhancing their innovation processes. Even organizations that demonstrate superior innovation performance, such as LEGO and Procter & Gamble, are extending their innovation capability by tapping into external communities and crowds.  Yet, we are still in relatively early days of this business transformation, and no single best way of tapping into open innovation models exists. In this talk, I will overview several factors that can guide a firm’s decision to engage with various forms of open innovation as well as data-driven insights on how such factors are perceived by organizational leaders and related to firms innovation philosophies.
