  • 5. Social innovation, some remarks on the Dutch perspective (1)
    • Prof. dr. Henk Volberda, Rotterdam School of Management:
    • The Netherlands are falling in the Global Competitiveness index
    • Research shows that technological innovation explains 25% of innovation success; social innovation explains 75% of the success
    • We have to increase innovative power through dynamic management, flexible organisations and development of skills and competences
  • 6. Social innovation, some remarks on the Dutch perspective (2)
    • Advice OESO (Febr. 2008): to sustain economic growth,
    • the Netherlands will have to:
    • Raise pension-age over 65 years
    • Work more hours a week
    • Discourage working in part-time jobs
    • But, Dutch employees:
    • Don’t like to work beyond the age of 65 years
    • Don’t like to work more hours a week
    • Like their part-time jobs and work-life balance
  • 7. Social innovation, some remarks on the Dutch perspective (3)
    • The traditional labour relations:
    • don’t fit the knowledge society on the one hand
    • and
    • don’t mobilize the new, lower educated and young groups on the labour market
  • 8. Social innovation, the Dutch challenge is:
    • to sustain economic growth and our level of welfare, the Dutch won’t work harder or make longer hours, but will have to work ‘smarter’.
    • to develop new adequate labour relations
    • to increase innovation and productivity. Dutch organisations will have to optimize the use of skills, competences and motivation of their employees and to embed technological innovation in social innovation
