Great piece of work and quite interesting take on that matter. I would say your conclusion about leaders and managers being more empowering to others, tapping into employees and customers senses, but more importantly - putting more emphasis on trial-and-error, that is the essence of open innovation. Although easier for start-ups, implementing that trial-and-error strategy in the banks, for instance, could be extremely difficult. Wouldn't it mean that whether the new management model will work or not, depends on the industry?
