Akm Milu Islam

Abstract—This study takes a more practice perspective in reviewing knowledge sharing risks of open innovation. It reviews existing literature to examine a case study of an organization to explore how the organization approaches its open innovation risk concerns related to knowledge sharing. Initially, this paper reviews the terms open innovation and knowledge sharing based on scholarly research and from a practice perspective. Following this, it reviews this case study to get a better understanding of how an organization balances the risks of knowledge sharing with the benefits of an open innovation approach. There-after it develops a conceptual framework based on the review of this case study. Finally, it provides concluding remarks, research limitations, and implications for future research.

Index Terms—Open innovation, Knowledge sharing,Innovation, Risks.
