Design things in a way that you are willing to address when it comes back to you.
  4. Open Innovation: This term was coined by Hennery Chesbrough. It means that when you start doing a task, don’t try to complete it with what you have. Try to see who else can help you. Look at competitors, academia and do it together. Additionally, while you are working together share the output with your partners to build lifetime relationships. Play not only into your companies interests but also your partners’. Your ability to work across the isles with academia, other businesses, and at the government, state and federal levels will make you very successful. I am an example of that. This is what I teach and preach.
