Mutations in the economic and technological environment have led to the emergence of open labs and collaborative spaces to handle the challenges of knowledge-based economies. They characterize with open and collaborative ways of working transforming the management of innovation. They act as catalysts between all contributors to business transformation and innovation in business ecosystems. The book looks beyond short-term effects and identifies four main dimensions: communities, physical spaces, events and portfolios of services offered to private businesses, entrepreneurs and startups, established companies, or public institutions. Most open labs and collaborative spaces are still looking for a business model and a strategy. Managerial practices leading to success used to remain a black box.

The phenomenon of open labs, innovation hubs (or platforms) and collaborative spaces is anchored in the general dynamics of open innovation. In this book, we use the words “open labs” to zoom out from the specificities promoted by labelling networks (living labs, fablabs) and other societal claims (coworking spaces).

This book investigates managerial issues, usually a black box or a set of implicit, often irrelevant, transpositions from other contexts. It covers all aspects related to open labs that are not directly affiliated with a large established firm.

 

We analyze returns on experience and managerial practices to generate deeper collaboration, intensify co-creation, support startuppers and established companies to explore, develop and accelerate their projects. We propose a framework to understand how open labs, innovation hubs and collaborative spaces contribute to ecosystems. With extensive field research lasting over 5 years, more than 40 cases, more than 200 interviews, and direct observation in different environments, we investigate how managers run these labs, and how “users” or “clients” evolve when benefitting from their services.

The chapters explain that these labs, hubs and spaces require an explicit management, with specific managerial practices, with events and adapted organizational designs. To accommodate the demands and expectations introduced by stakeholders and users, mindsets have to adapt. Open labs, hubs and spaces are the beatbox to create a rhythm in ecosystems and make all stakeholders move forward, faster, together. To travel this journey, engage key stakeholders and make an impact, new ways of working, new attitudes and new skills are required to empower collective competences and support communities. Our main conclusion is simple: setting up a physical space or installing a portfolio of “open lab-related” activities without the appropriate management makes no impact.

Preparatory workshop


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The newPIC chair at Paris School of Business organizes a (closed) preparatory workshop with the authors to discuss the advancement of the project and the chapters, in partnership with MOSAIC research center at HEC Montreal. The workshop will take place online as a videoconference (Zoom) on

10th and 11th of March, 2021

The workshop is organized under the patronage of the Special interest group Innovation (SIG 06 INNO) of the European Academy of Management (EURAM) currently chaired by Vivek K. VELAMURI (HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management).

Several research articles presented in the workshop and in the book elaborate on research projects commissioned to the newPIC chair by Bpifrance and Bpifrance Le Lab.
