We have seen this week that open innovation has the potential to make significant impact to competitive advantage, but there are challenges and risks to realise this.

We hope you found the quiz useful, regardless of whether you got the answer right first time. We designed it to help build your understanding of the content we’ve covered this week.

Next week we’ll be building on our theme and looking at how organisations can prepare themselves for openness and how they can best work with their networks.
