IdeaConnection is currently looking for participants to join a team working on the challenge below. This is a re-launched challenge, and if your team’s solution is fully accepted and awarded, and all IP is transferred, each team member will be paid $5000.00.
Economic Model for Open Innovation
A convincing quantitative-based argument to the CFO and the executive suite of a large, R&D based organization that the company's pilot Open Innovation work should be widely integrated into its current innovation strategy. A study of the various factors that are affected by this integration, and especially their overall effect on economic and financial outcomes are to be included.
The argument will be made via an empirical adaptation of a theoretical economic model combined with a decision tool - the seeker requires a new, predictive economic/financial model that R&D-based companies can use to optimize the proportion of its R&D budget it will dedicate to a portfolio of Open Innovation projects, and to assess the economic costs and benefits of this integration.
If your team's solution to this challenge is accepted in full and awarded, you will each receive $5000.00.
If you are accepted to work with the team, you will be working online with approximately 3-4 other Problem Solvers and one experienced Facilitator.
