Using the Concept of Open Innovation in Managing a Company’s Core Competencies

Zygmunt Waśkowski , Anna Jasiulewicz


The identification of the external supply sources and confronting them with the organization’s needs should become a foundation for creating a system ensuring a constant access to the nutrients that each tree (a company) needs for its development. The identified subsystems indicate the areas in which a company can obtain access to the external sources of competencies, by means of open innovation. This access is conditional on having an expanded network of relationships, both in the organization’s sector and outside it. The model presented in the chapter takes a form of a closed system, which includes the mechanism of a company’s self‑improvement and which is powered from the outside, through the conscious use of the concept of open innovation. Thanks to this concept, a company can improve its core competencies, as well as create higher value for its customers, which directly leads to strengthening its market position. The considerations presented in the chapter lead us to a conclusion that further research and the exploration of the corporate concepts should rely on the two classic concepts of strategic management, i.e. the resource concept and the network of relationships concept.
