It starts by analyzing in detail the concept of Open Innovation and the underlying mechanisms that interplay to enable it in such firms. A framework in the form of a input-output model is defined with which to analyze and judge Open Innovation capabilities of a firm’s innovation processes. The thesis then takes the form of a case-study targeting the innovation processes of a specific technology company, analyzing it, judging it and scoring it in order to identify gaps that need to be filled to enable Open Innovation in its organization. There are identified opportunities for scientific contribution and future research, coming out of the concepts developed as part of this Master’s thesis study.
