Abstract

Organizations that innovate will continue to achieve success and innovation around products and services is certainly of value, but high-order innovation can provide more substantial, economic long-term benefits – especially if it is shared across a sector, or a group of collaborators. This leads to the next question – how ready are Irish organizations to engage in open innovative practices? One thing is for certain; Ireland is starting out from a very strong base position. The question is can we stop viewing other organizations as competitors, and more as collaborators? This is the challenge facing Irish industry.
