Literature Review: Open Innovation in Software Engineering

Georg Vann
This thesis explores how the principles of open innovation have been applied in the software engineering domain. To methodically gather and analyze studies, the systematic literature review approach is adopted. The relative novelty of open innovation means that there is a lack of models and tools that adopt the principles of open innovation according to different activities of software engineering, such as software testing. Software projects that do employ open innovation are mostly fostered by partnerships between large enterprises and higher education institutions, but small-medium enterprises and government institutions are slowly adopting the open innovation approach as well. All in all, it seems there is need of research that would clearly establish the possibilities of adopting open innovation in software engi-neering projects.
