Manage Innovation Barriers
This chapter deals with how innovation barriers after a contest can be managed if the organizer of the contest has decided to provide support also after the contest itself has ended. As starting point, a survey of such barriers to innovation is presented together with approaches for managing such barriers. The management approach is described from a contest organizers perspective, and includes an activity description followed by a running example. Finally, a read more section presents the theoretical base for the innovation barrier approach. Manage Innovation Barriers is the second activity in the post contest phase. After the contest, the deployment of a digital service will be structured according to a decided post contest strategy. See Chap. 12, Develop strategy, for managing the relationship between the organisers and the former participants. Different barriers can hinder a post contest deployment project to transform a prototype to an operational digital service ready for market entry.
