New models of innovation supported by emerging technology are a recent phenomenon and understudied. This emerging model leads to blurred understanding of the limits to and usefulness of this model of innovation and the supporting technology in enabling open innovation practices. This paper presents an innovation jams through a 10-year longitudinal study that provides a definition and foundational characteristics of innovation jams as they evolved from 2001-2011- as IBM learned to engage with a new model of organizing innovation. A techno-social perspective of innovation jams is utilized that posits innovation jams as an accomplishment that is constituted and reconstituted through their development for innovative activity. We conclude with a discussion on the implications of having a definition for theorizing about this new model of organizing innovation.
