Following on from our post last month about how BT manage the business impact of innovation, below we've got a video from Mike Murray, Open Innovation Manager at Stanley Black and Decker.

The takeaways from this fairly short video are that you have to know what you're looking for when working with innovation challenges. By that, we mean it can be extremely open to the entire organisation or very technical to a very specific group of people .. also, open innovation doesn't mean outside of the organisation!
