This paper presents an initial pool of attributes for describing a company’s Open Innovation (OI) situation. Based on an explorative interview, study we identified an insufficient planning as one of the main reasons for insufficient results or even failures of OI-projects. Specific project goals, boundary conditions and resulting constraints are only rudimentarily considered so far. The presented attributes in this paper lay the basis for a systematic analysis of an OI-situation and efficient planning of an OI-project in terms of selection the right Oi-actors and OI-methods.
