One of the most innovative approaches to open innovation is coming again this year: The Problem Conference.
Here: For Management Challenges!
The core idea: Turn a conference upside down. Instead of presenting "solutions" and "best practices" to impress the other participants with your successes, present your hardest challenge. Present what you could not solve, and ask openly for help! The (beginning of the) solution then will be co-created with the participants.
Due to the great success of the first problem conference in 2010 we are proud to announce to you the 2013 edition of the ISPIM Seeks Solutions Conference!
Taking place 16:00 – 17:30, June 18th, at the ISPIM conference in Helsinki (Room: 304 - 3rd floor). The ISPIM 2013 conference offers the unique opportunity to engage in this new form of "local open innovation".
Call for problems: What is your problem with managing innovation?
You have a problem related to innovation management and want to use the intelligence of experts from all around the world to solve it? Here’s how you can do it!
Submit your problem to ISPIM Seeks Solutions and if your problem is selected your problem will be treated during the one hour and a half workshop on June 18th at the ISPIM conference in Helsinki.
To submit a problem, describe it using here
The process is based on the open innovation problem broadcasting approach. Problems can be submitted until March 29th. The “best problems” will then be selected and broadcasted on the web few weeks prior the event. Problem seekers will also get some support from ISPIM experts to well define the problem prior to broadcasting it. During the workshop in itself, ISPIM delegates participating to the workshop will collaborate around the selected problems and help you in understanding it better.
