The “Open” in Open Innovation Doesn’t Happen by Accident

Posted by Dwayne Spradlin on Mar 13, 2009 11:52:35 AM

We've been talking to you quite a bit recently about communication - and our desire to share and be more open with you, and hopefully to encourage you to tell us about yourselves.  As part of this initiative, I wanted to let you know about a few more things we've been working on.

We announced recently that we've added RSS feeds to our site.  This is something that may seem a long time in coming, but we wanted to ensure that they were really going to be useful - and as customizable as you might want them to be.  We hope that the options we've provided will allow you to keep up on only the things that are most interesting to you, including Challenges of a specific type, all open Challenges, or the latest news on our blog.

We've launched a new discussion board, specifically for the IAVI Challenge.  Click the "talk" bubble to access this area.  We're working on making discussion boards much more widely available - look for more of these in the near future.

Finally, in a move that had some of my colleagues scratching their heads, I've decided to provide you with more information than ever about the inner workings at InnoCentive - starting with a glance at Solver demographics.  We talk quite often about the diversity of our marketplace, and I feel strongly that we have built a community that is unparalleled in this respect.  I'm proud to be able to back this statement up with some real data.  In the future, I plan to share even more of this type of information, and would be interested in hearing from you about what you'd most like to learn.

Stay tuned for more on this front, and please let us know what you think - how are we doing?
