In this paper, we explore the possible boundaries of open innovation by looking at the properties and problems associated with various forms of governance which all have claims to be regarded as open innovation. We look first at some basic forms of open innovation governance before looking at the case of a relatively neglected but increasingly important variant, bespoke or customised innovation. We discuss the implications before finishing with some tentative conclusions.
