Effective innovation resource management ensures that the best ideas make it to the market. A cost-effective IP/partnership strategy can strengthen competitive advantage. Innovation can originate from one person’s idea and effort, but it is rare that one person has all the capabilities necessary to move from vision to execution. Innovation generally requires a variety of people, with different skills and expertise, to come together and collectively create value. In some ways, you could say that innovation resources and IP partnerships have always been a combined process. Today, globalization means that expertise exists in every corner of the world; it is not always easy and cost effective to put the necessary experts together in a room. However, technology provides solutions to bridge geographic gaps. Social software is a relatively inexpensive way to bring together diverse opinions. It also allows many more people to share ideas and work together towards an innovation goal.
