Henry Chesbrough Author & Executive Director, The Center for Open Innovation
Dr. Henry Chesbrough created the theory and coined the term “open Innovation.” His concept was introduced in his award-winning book, Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology (Harvard Business Press, 2003), and extended to business model innovation in his 2006 follow-up, Open Business Models: How to Thrive in the New Innovation Landscape. His newest book is Open Services and Innovation: Rethinking Your Business to Grow and Compete in a New Era (Jossey-Bass, 2011). With global economies shifting from manufacturing-focused to services-focused, openness – and its ability to deliver improved choices for customers and better economies for corporations – is a path that can turn commodity companies into trailblazers. Dr. Chesbrough is executive director of The Center for Open Innovation.
