Inspired by the energy and success of commercial co-working spaces, corporations are creating their own internal or "corporate" co-working spaces to drive innovation and to disrupt themselves before getting disrupted from the outside. Are corporations ready for open innovation? Can they directly apply the commercial co-working model with all its fundamental values, such as openly sharing information or placing learning over expertise? This presentation reveals the findings of a global research that investigated the success stories of and lessons learned from 15 companies globally that have built their own co-working spaces. Examine the drivers behind creating these spaces, their expected and unexpected benefits, and how results and performance are measured.
