Abstract

Key performance indicators (KPIs) for SMEs have been often overlooked by the Open Innovation (OI) literature. This study aims to fill this gap by developing an open innovation readiness assessment tool with a set of KPIs, to help SMEs evaluate their current OI capabilities in order to identify areas of improvement. The KPIs identified in this study are based on best practices and critical issues found in 120 case studies across 6 European regions: Eastern Europe, France and Germany, Scandinavia, Small Developed Countries, Southern Europe, and UK & Ireland. These KPIs have been used to create an assessment tool that will allow SMEs to determine where and how they can develop strategic collaborations to strengthen their competitive advantage.
