​Innovations are a critical success factor for organizations to survive. Nowadays possibilities of information and communication technologies facilitate the use of IT-based tools for the integration of external innovators into the innovation process of organizations. These tools, like innovation communities, innovation contests, innovation toolkits, and innovation market places, are subsumed under the term open innovation platforms (OIPs). The skills required to design and manage OIPs differ significantly from those for a default website. Hence, typical lifecycle models cannot be applied. Stefan Hallerstede addresses this gap and develops a dedicated lifecycle management approach for OIPs. In doing so, information systems and open innovation literature are merged as well as the major players in the market are introduced. He builds on three in-depth cases of professional OIP lifecycle management, and compiles guidelines for managing each phase of an OIP’s lifecycle. Thereby, challenges in the lifecycle of OIPs are identified and mechanisms to overcome them are developed. Concluding, Stefan Hallerstede provides important insights for all, who are interested in, involved in, or designers and managers of open innovation platforms.

Special attention at the conference was given to the three topics "Energy, Markets and Mobility". The OR2012 conference has addressed these topics from an OR perspective, treating them not only in isolation, but also with respect to their numerous and exciting interconnections, such as new energy for new mobility concepts and new market mechanisms for sustainable energy production to name but a few. The proceedings show that this conference topic is an important and promising area to apply Operations Research.

Organisations are involved in various types of negotiation. As digitalisation advances, such business negotiations are to a large extent electronic negotiations. Consequently, dedicated training for such electronic negotiations is important for mastering negotiation skills. The present book develops a new approach for a motivating and improved e-negotiation training by applying gamification, i.e. using game design elements in a non-game context, in order to improve participants' motivation, engagement, and learning outcomes. A negotiation support system used within an e-negotiation training is enhanced with game design elements. The book describes the design process, its theoretical foundations, and the evaluation of the gamified negotiation support system. The final quantitative evaluation shows higher motivation, engagement and better learning outcomes for participants in the gamified training compared to a conventional training. Organisations can employ the designed artefact for fundamental and effective e-negotiation training. Additionally, the book provides insights in how to design a gamified system for a particular application context.

Be future-proof with the energy licence! Making the economy and society fit for the future begs the question: how will the energy needs of tomorrow be met? What measures need to be implemented by companies and communities today in order to be future-proof tomorrow?

In this book, the authors set out the possible scenarios, their consequences and the essential factors for securing tomorrow's energy supply. They also provide the information needed by readers to earn their 'energy licence'. It's a licence designed to qualify the holder to recognise key developments, trends and options for the energy future, and to take the necessary action within their own organisations.
