Abstract

Open Innovation Learning is a new book based on research conducted by David Ing during doctoral studies at Aalto University in Finland.

This work synthesizes both descriptive and normative theories of open innovation and organizational learning. The theories are built on 7 case studies of IBM participating with open source communities between 2001-2011.

The Systems Thinking Ontario audience will appreciate the foundations in the systems sciences and new contributions to the field coming from ecological epistemology.

David Ing is a cofounder of the Trito Innovation Colab. He is currently teaching "Systems Thinking, Systems Design" in the graduate iSchool program at the University of Toronto. He is a former president of the International Society for the Systems Sciences (2011-2012). In 2012, he became an alumnus of IBM, after 28 years of service. Studies in the doctoral program in Industrial Management at Aalto University are continuing.

Peter Jones will be moderating this session. As commenters, Tim Lloyd and special guest Stephen Perelgut will warm up the audience for Q&A.
