Open Innovation for Small Business

Open Innovation for Small Business | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Open innovation may seem to be the preserve of big business. After all, it is often associated with long established monstrosities like Proctor and Gamble and IBM.

Dans ces pays émergents – dans ce domaine ils n’ont d’émergent que le nom – nombre d’acteurs qui voient, dans un esprit très churchillien, des opportunités dans les contraintes, non l’inverse.
