Even if you know when the term "open innovation" was coined, do you know who came up with it?

Professor Henry Chesbrough, Executive Director of the Center for Open Innovation at the University of California (Berkeley), first used the term in his book, Open Innovation – The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology.

The book is based on his research into the innovation practices of large global companies.

Sound interesting? Chesbrough will be joining us for a webcast on Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. EST/ 10:30 a.m. PST.
