Open innovation: how NASA mastered a radically new approach to collaboration and problem-solving—and the lessons for your organization.
A radio frequency engineer from rural New Hampshire contributed the best solution to a public challenge issued by NASA’s Space Life Sciences Directorate. As Aneesh Chopra, Federal CTO put it, his idea “blew away the others whose ideas were under consideration…[with] no complicated RFP, need for lobbyists, convoluted processes…just a smart person [who] was paid a modest $30,000 for his insight.”
