Open Innovation is a great concept to drive ideas and find solutions. To approach and dive into open innovation is not always uncomplicated. At WE THINQ (Disclaimer: I am the founder of WE THINQ) we believe that an easy-entry point is much needed, and that a good alternative to this would be practical and concise messages showing you the potential and needed resources, factual examples, and providing accurate answers to the right questions. Here is a little taster to show you how this open innovation course will help you get started.

Instead of putting it all into a guide, we have come up with something different. We have created a seven-day tutorial via email. Since most printed documentation is easily stored and forgotten, we believe email is the most accessible way, from anywhere, at any time; therefore, we provide you with seven concise emails filled with the most important and up-to-date information on open innovation. Enjoy everyday our step-by-step course, with just sufficient content, and learn how you can implement open innovation in your organization.

"About 13 percent of policy reports were downloaded at least 250 times while more than 31 percent of policy reports are never downloaded. Almost 87 percent of policy reports were never...
