Member Summit 2016 - Collaboration Deep Dive

Prototyping a Future Vision of R&D Collaboration

In an interactive follow-up session to their plenary talk, the ROR Collaboration team will delve deeper into their latest research on a new crowdsourced innovation process for augmenting R&D problem solving, and reveal more details from the first ever field test of the process that was conducted at the IRI Spring Networks Meeting and Annual Meeting. Find out how two real industrial problems were solved by IRI members with the help of inspirations from online crowds and what the results reveal about emerging best practices for problem formulation and creative ideation when exploring a solution space for R&D challenges. Join us to discuss the benefits and challenges learned from the field tests, and explore how you can use crowdsourcing to augment R&D problem solving in your organization.
