Publication on open innovation and corporate universities in the Journal of Workplace Learning


We have published our recent paper: “The challenges facing corporate universities in dealing with open innovation” in the Journal of Workplace Learning, No 27, Issue 4. 2015

It is the first article of my PhD thesis in innovation management at ETS Montréal.

Here is the abstract:

The challenges facing corporate universities in dealing with open innovation

Louis Rhéaume, PhD Candidate/Lecturer, ÉTS Montréal and Adjunct, TELUQ
Mickaël Gardoni, Professor, ÉTS Montréal / INSA de Strasbourg


This article illustrates the quick rise in the popularity of corporate universities since the 1990s. Since knowledge management is becoming imperative to the survival and growth of firms in most industries, a better management of corporate universities is becoming more and more critical. The purpose of this article is to analyze three objectives: Why invest in corporate universities? Which model to adopt? What are the key challenges facing corporate universities in dealing with the adoption of an open innovation approach?

The article provides a general review of corporate universities dealing with open innovation by using a creative synthesis.


A corporate university constitutes a means of systemizing training on an ongoing basis. This article analyzes the challenges involved in the development of corporate universities and examines how they can deal with open innovation. While few corporate universities have a real strategic role, several initiatives have failed or have been seriously compromised. To create competitive advantages through a corporate university, upper management must dedicate significant resources and have a plan for building the corporate curriculum in order to deal with innovation management.

Research limitations/implications

Due to the lack of scientific articles on the topic, we used most of the published articles made by practitioners. Further studies are needed to test the recommendations and models.

Practical implications
This article identifies some development models and growth avenues for corporate universities. It helps provide an understanding of the challenges associated with open innovation as well as their limits.

It is among the first papers to link the development of corporate universities with the open innovation approach. It also provides practical advice for managers and academics.

Mobile Applications Expectations Are Rising [Infographic]

Mobile traffic grew 81% last year. 91% of adults keep their smart phone within an arm’s reach. This may seem like a great opportunity but, to paraphrase, “with great [opportunity] comes great [expectations].”

67% of users start engaging on one device and continue on another, an experience they expect to be seamless. Furthermore, they want mobile apps to load in under 3 seconds (and this number is always getting lower) with little margin for error before frustration sets in. But it doesn’t end there, poor performance can cost you customer recommendations and, therefore, money.

Multiscreen World [infographic on multitasking]

Did you know that the average person spends about seven hours per day looking at some kind of screen? And for many users, this is even higher. For this most part, this means that users are watching TV, checking their smartphones, working on their laptop, or consuming media on their tablets. Yes, we are truly living in a multi-screen world.


But each multi-screen user has his or her own habits and ways to browse, and understanding consumer behavior across multiple screens is indeed one of modern marketing’s key challenges. This infographic will help you get a visual grasp of the different habits of multi-screen users across their various devices.
