The topic of this thesis is “Using open innovation to gain knowledge and technology”. Open innovation as a topic has been researched quite much but the different researches have not gathered all the most used obtaining methods to one research. I saw it fitting to gather the most used inbound methods together. The other researches usually focus on one or two methods and the advantages and disadvantages of different methods have not been gathered under one study. This bachelor’s thesis is a literature review in which I write about all inbound open innovation methods and what advantages and possible disadvantages they might have. The main findings in this research is how the different methods work and what kind of open innovation business models each method supports. This bachelor’s thesis could help companies to determine what kind of obtaining method to use if they would like to implement open innovation to their company’s business model.
