    The theme of this year’s ICIS conference focuses on connectivity and collaboration. In Information Systems Development (ISD) these concepts are increasingly important as developing effective information systems is rarely a task that can be completed in isolation by a single co-located team. Connectivity and collaboration with a wide range of external sources of knowledge is required; a trend which is in line with the concept of Open Innovation - the flow of ideas into and out of an organization. The literature on Open Innovation (OI) uses a variety of definitions and focal points, which do not yet cohere into a useable analytical framework. This research-in-progress paper proposes an important and unique tailoring of a widely used ISD framework, Method-in-Action. By integrating the literature on OI, a conceptual framework has been developed which illustrates some significant aspects and factors which need to be considered when investigating open innovation process use in ISD.
