Dynamics of Open Innovation

  • JinHyo Joseph Yun
Part of the Management for Professionals book series (MANAGPROF)


We created conceptual models that might be used to analyze and forecast the dynamic effects of open innovation. We then applied these models to the smartphone sector using a model-based analysis approach. In addition, we built an open innovation simulation model for the smartphone sector. The dynamic model of open innovation will link logic and concepts relating open innovation, complex adaptive systems, and evolutionary change. The model was used to analyze the dynamic effects of open innovation strategies and open innovation simulation for the selection of future strategies.
