Collaborative innovation networks are cyberteams of motivated individuals, and are self-organizing emergent social systems with the potential to promote health, happiness and individual growth in real-world work settings.

This book describes how to identify and nurture collaborative innovation networks in order to shape the future working environment and pave the way for health and happiness, and how to develop future technologies to promote economic development, social innovation and entrepreneurship. The expert contributions and case studies presented also offer insights into how large corporations can creatively generate solutions to real-world problems by means of self-organizing mechanisms, while simultaneously promoting the well-being of individual workers. The book also discusses how such networks can benefit startups, offering new self-organizing forms of leadership in which all stakeholders are encouraged to collaborate in the development of new products.
