Abstract

This paper attempts to better understand how firms can improve their open innovation capabilities. Specifically this paper focuses on the process of external searching. An in-depth literature review, combined with workshops with companies from the oil and gas sector lead the authors to conclude that firms can improve their innovation performance by having a defined and managed process for their core open innovation activities. Our research shows evidence of open innovation activity, but points to a lack of managed searching processes.
