There are many ways an organization can approach innovation. On one end of the spectrum an organization can choose to have everyone submit any idea. On the other, innovation can be generated from a small, dedicated group of specialists. In the middle there are many variations along the way. This paper discusses the open innovation typology and the options for an organization making the decision about the best way to create an innovation infrastructure.
