Offering a comprehensive review of contemporary research on inclusive innovation, chapters address the systemic, structural issues that present the 'grand challenges' of our time. With 27 contributions from 57 expert scholars, this Handbook highlights both emerging practices and scalable solutions.
Acting as a call to action, the chapters place social impact at the heart of theory and practice, providing fresh insight into global issues and practical solutions. Organized into five distinct sections to reflect current theoretical approaches and frameworks, contributions cover social innovation in practice; community and place; systems, institutions and infrastructure; individuals, organizations and organizing, and networks and social change. This Handbook emphasizes the fundamental shift needed in management scholarship to address global problems and achieve social impact by working towards the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
This will be an invaluable resource for those championing social inclusion in both research and practice, including innovation researchers and management scholars more broadly.
'Bravo! Inclusive innovation is one of the most important topics in management research. Yet, there has been no standard reference available for mapping out the topic and providing a systematic discussion of what we know and what remains to be done. In this essential contribution, George, Baker, Tracey and Joshi have brought together many of the leading scholars on the topic and have provided a much needed overview. This will undoubtedly become the key reference in inclusive innovation.'
