Berkeley news article on this prestigious achievement and Alice Waters’ connection to UC Berkeley. The article references the case study that was the subject of BEST Labber Soyeong Kim’s dissertation: Open Innovation Ecosystem: Chez Panisse Case Study.
Quote from the article: Also in 2014, the strategic use of Chez Panisse’s branding of suppliers’ names on the restaurant menu was deemed a prime example of the “open innovation” business model at work, according to a case study published in California Management Review. The study was co-authored by Henry Chesbrough, a Berkeley-Haas School of Business professor who coined the term “open innovation.” (Sohyeong Kim and Alice Agogino were the other co-authors.)
Alice Waters wrote us a letter of support for our recent award from the Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study on “Open Innovation in Food Innovation and Design: Comparative Case Study of California Cuisine and New Nordic Cuisine”.
