About this product
- DescriptionThe last two decades have witnessed an extraordinary growth of new models of managing and organizing the invation process that emphasizes users over producers. Large parts of the kwledge ecomy w routinely rely on users, communities, and open invation approaches to solve important techlogical and organizational problems. This view of invation, pioneered by the ecomist Eric von Hippel, counters the dominant paradigm, which cast the profit-seeking incentives of firms as the main driver of technical change. In a series of influential writings, von Hippel and colleagues found empirical evidence that flatly contradicted the producer-centered model of invation. Since then, the study of user-driven invation has continued and expanded, with further empirical exploration of a distributed model of invation that includes communities and platforms in a variety of contexts and with the development of theory to explain the ecomic underpinnings of this still emerging paradigm. This volume provides a comprehensive and multidisciplinary view of the field of user and open invation, reflecting advances in the field over the last several decades. The contributors -- including many colleagues of Eric von Hippel -- offer both theoretical and empirical perspectives from such diverse fields as ecomics, the history of science and techlogy, law, management, and policy. The empirical contexts for their studies range from household goods to financial services. After discussing the fundamentals of user invation, the contributors cover communities and invation; legal aspects of user and community invation; new roles for user invators; user interactions with firms; and user invation in practice, describing experiments, toolkits, and crowdsourcing, and crowdfunding.
