Chesbrough, Henry W.
Publication date: 7/1/2016, pages 1-15

The company is also shifting its business model away from the traditional "cost plus" regulatory model, towards a model built around a variety of value-add services. Open innovation is an important part of this transformation. There are internal barriers to overcome, and new organizational structures required, to manage this change.
