Kuhn (1962, p. 103) writes, “[Paradigms] are the source of the methods, problem-field, and standards of solution accepted by any mature scientific community at any given time.” Organizational innovation management is experiencing a paradigm shift. In this chapter, the technological drivers for the open paradigm are discussed followed by key concepts of innovation management including innovation funnel, radical and incremental innovation, exploration and exploitation, and organizational change. We then contrast closed and open innovation and highlight some selected forms, approaches, and practices of open innovation. We review major and promising theoretical models and present questions for further research. Open source will be reviewed as part of open community models.
