Social Innovation: Collaborative Innovation Processes in Distributed Innovation-Communities
Globalization and the constant availability of new and disruptive technologies increases the pressure for innovation on companies from all sectors. In most cases, companies are aware of the necessary change requirements, but in some cases, there is a lack of methods and tools to use their own innovative power in a sustainable manner. In practice, it has become apparent that organizations can only develop their full innovative strength if innovation management is maintained and if all parties in the business from internal knowledge bearers, external business, research and development partners and consultants are involved as well. For such innovation communities, the Horus Social Innovation Lab offers a cloud-based social network and a proven methodology.
