Open Innovation Toolbox

Task Definition 

What is the objective to be achieved?

At the start of the project, you must define

  • The problem to be solved. A clear description of the initial situation and the problem situation are required for this
  • What should be achieved after the Open Innovation project

Experiences have shown that this objective can be organised into 3 areas:

  1. Innovation: Develop creative ideas for task
  2. Marketing: Generate visibility for a matter
  3. Personnel search: Identify creative minds

Above all, it must be considered that community building and networking present a very important objective in the digital world. The networking community can be an important starting point for your own digital business model.
