Barriers to Innovating Openly

    Abstract

    The paper describes findings from an interview study about what are companies seeing as barriers to innovating openly. Most of the open innovation literature focuses on the opportunities of innovating openly, but companies will face new challenges and risks when opening up their innovation process and having external actors in their network to develop innovations. A total of 40 companies and public organisations in Finland and in the Netherlands were studied using semi-structured face-to-face interviews. Qualitative research approach was applied to create an understanding of the barriers. Barriers identified in the study include factors related to culture, resources, business model, management of intellectual property (IP), partners and management of collaboration network in general. We argue that barriers identified in the interviews can be categorised into two main categories: company-specific factors and in environment-specific factors related to collaboration network and industry practices.
