Speaking on this Dr. Kannan Vishwanatth said, “Open innovation, the practice of collaborating with external entities to co-create new value, has become essential to business success. As organizations face a slew of challenges ahead of them, especially the issue of sustainability, they will need to harness the potential of open innovation to shorten organizational response time and capitalize on future opportunities. Today’s market dynamics present a critical opportunity for business leaders to revisit their strategies. The need for enterprises to be fast, agile, responsible, and innovative is not an option – it is a must. Yet innovation is too often seen as a separate effort, rather than a core element of the business.Amidst the gloom and doom of the early months of the COVID-19 crisis, something surprisingly uplifting started to happen: Companies began to come together to work openly at an unprecedented level, putting the ability to create value before the opportunity to make a buck.”
