Global Open Innovation – Establishing Technology Scouting in Multinational Corporations

Multinational-OrganizationToday, multinational corporations are increasingly using their vast global reach to tap different markets quickly and exploit their on-the-ground knowledge to sniff out new ideas emerging around the globe. Although the advantage of being a multinational is exactly this knowledge access on a global basis, there is a big gap between the potential for global knowledge sourcing and the actual use of such knowledge to introduce new products and services.

In this webinar, we will discuss the opportunities and challenges multinational corporations face (as well as some best practices) in establishing technology scouting units worldwide and in implementing open and global innovation processes.
