Knowing You, Knowing Me: Innovation as Transparency | Innovation Management | collaboration |

One chief innovation officer observed to me that, were a potential collaborator to view their external web site to understand where the company was focusing its research and development, they would come away stymied. The compelling conversations they host inside never are reflected, externally, in a way that others can grasp. As a result, they miss an untold number of opportunities to collaborate. They have to work a lot harder to attract talent and the genesis of new ventures.
