Description

"In a two-part video, Ralph Hulseman of Michelin Americas R&D Corporation outlines the company's innovation strategy, which includes an emphasis on innovation communities. According to Hulseman, Michelin is actively embracing collaborative innovation, encouraging others to develop products and services that are complementary to Michelin innovations. In the future, this means that Michelin innovations will come from external partners, rather than solely from internal R&D operations. If you click through all the PowerPoint slides, there's a great "networks of innovation" slide that shows how the core competencies at Michelin relate to the projects and initiatives that the company coordinates with external partners."
