John Shank's curator insight, February 18, 2013 8:38 AM

I would love to see more partnerships between librarians and instructional designers and technologist to promote OERs to faculty. I especially like the idea of promoting interactive learning materials (ILMs - i.e. modules, games and simulations). I am developing a discovery service at my college for this.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's comment, February 22, 2013 10:02 AM
I'm involved with our campus' Affordable Learning Initiative and part of this endeavor is assisting with locating OER and library resources already available.

Managing External Knowledge in Open Innovation Processes – A Systematic Review of Research

Managing External Knowledge in Open Innovation Processes – A Systematic Review of Research | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

The importance of knowledge and knowledge management for organizations hasbeen widely discussed in recent years. Historically, the lion’s share of organizationalknowledge was generated internally, e.g., by a company’s R&D department. Today, only fewfirms can sustain their competitiveness and innovativeness by focusing exclusively on internalknowledge sources. In order to keep track of recent trends, they are increasingly drawing inknowledge from external sources. Managing highly specific knowledge from customers, tech-nologies, markets, etc. is a key to innovation. Its importance is widely reflected in research on,e.g. “user innovation”, “collective invention” or “interactive added value”. However, integratingexternal knowledge to foster innovation faces companies with a number of challenges. Openinnovation as paradigm shift in innovation management and strategic approach to include theoutside world into internal innovation processes is widely regarded as a promising approachin current research.The present article examines the role of external knowledge in the field of open innovation. Bycarrying out a systematic literature review the author develops eight categories with 19 sub-categories of potential external knowledge sources. A systematization of the identifiedsources investigates a variety of assets and drawbacks that can be associated with the inte-gration of such knowledge. Thereby, the article shows that (a) the current research on openinnovation is already highly concerned about the role of external knowledge, but (b) mainlyfocuses on just a few categories/subcategories and (c) tends to neglect many positive and/or negative influences on creativity and innovativeness.The study illustrates that selecting external sources of knowledge is one of the main chal-lenges of open innovation. Therefore, the author provides a set of strategic recommenda-tions: Firms must concentrate on the most valuable sources, limit their number, provide thenecessary means to acquire that knowledge and accurately measure if such additional exter-nal knowledge does not over-expand the complexity of innovation processes.
