Closed Innovation is a idea management methodology in order to develop new products. Many corporates use this methodology in order to prevent theft of ideas. Furthermore there is the fear that someone else take the ideas and create a patent or a company out of these ideas. The disadvantage is, that the potential customer and the feedback is involved on a very late stage. The opposite of Closed Innovation is Open Innovation.
