Abstract: Open innovation can introduce new ways of organizing the innovation process within companies, but these new activities and processes naturally require some time to mature and work effectively. Continuous improvement of capacities and results is therefore required (Teeceet al., 1997; Winter, 2003). The basic aim of this research was to develop, in collaboration with 15 companies, an open innovation maturity framework to measure and benchmark excellence in open innovation. The open innovation maturity framework that was developed combines metrics in several areas of open innovation to illustrate the expertise of that organization. It can reveal organizational excellence as well as areas of improvement in order to reach the next level of maturity.
