Henry Chesbrough is responsible for coining the term ‘Open Innovation’. He is currently Professor at Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley, and ESADE Business School.
He has written a number of books on open innovation: Open Business Models: How to Thrive in the New Innovation Landscape (HBS Press, 2006), Open Innovation: Researching a New Paradigm (Oxford, 2006), and Open Services Innovation (Wiley, 2011).
Complementing his work on Open Innovation,Henry Chesbrough has been very active in the field of Services Science with IBM Almaden Research Center. His Article, “A Research Manifesto for Services Science” published with Jim Spohrer in Communications of the ACM (2006) established an agenda for uniting this Balkanized discourse into a mature and cohesive scientific discipline that can guide the evolution of global economies in the coming century. Some six years later, his keynote, which he has prepared in consultation with Jim Spohrer, reflects upon what this research program has achieved, and where outstanding research opportunities remain.
