Nowadays, many companies are increasingly turning to open innovation (OI) to generate new business opportunities through the utilization of knowledge, and technology with the external parties. Various researchers and practitioners are paying attention to the development of OI readiness evaluation tools for assessing innovation capabilities in their business activities. However, methods of these evaluation tool are capability-oriented and relatively little attention has been paid to considering mindset and behavior intersect in OI activities at organizational level. In this article, attempts to fill this gap are made by examining organizations' readiness for OI adoption. Particular attention is given to what thinking toward OI, what behavior toward OI, and how mindset affects their behavior for OI adoption in the market and technology activities. The goal is to understand how these understanding can enhance effectiveness for implementing OI activities in the organizations, especially technology-intensive enterprises.
