Design Thinking for Inclusive InnovationValues-Based Leadership in Business Model InnovationEntrepreneuring in Emerging Markets Defining Innovation

One of the most overused, vague terms of our time?

Since Joseph Schumpeter, more than 50 definitions and definitional debates in academic literature

Two key features of most innovations:

Something new (original, fresh, improved)That creates value (of some kind, for someone/thing)

The WHAT of innovation (products, processes etc)The WHY of innovation (the purpose solving problems and/or realising new possibilities?)

Incremental vs disruptive innovation

Prof Gerard George on inclusive Innovation

Defined as an innovation that benefits the disenfranchisedIs a process as well as a performance outcomePoints to inequalities that might arise in the development and commercialisation of innovationAcknowledges the inequalities that might occur as a result of value creation and capture

Some important notes:Includes all forms of innovation: products, services, processes, institutions, business models, supply chains etcDistinguish between process and outcomes both are important (even if outcomes are not fully realised)

Definitions we have an affinity for on the MPhil

Inclusive Innovation: the development and implementation of new ideas which aspire to create opportunities that enhance social and economic well-being George et al, 2011

Social Innovation: A novel solution to a social problem that is more effective, efficient, sustainable, or just, than existing solutions and for which the value created accrues primarily to society as a whole rather than private individuals. Westley & Antadze, 2010
