  5. 5. 2015-06-11 DEFINING  SOCIAL  INNOVATION Social  innovation  is  an  initiative,  product,  process   or  program  that  profoundly  changes  a  social  system by  changing  one  or  more  of: Ø the  basic  routines  (how  we  act;  what  we  do) Ø the  resources  flows  (money,  knowledge,  people) Ø the  authority  flows  (laws,  policies,  rules) Ø the  beliefs  (what  we  believe  is  true,  right/wrong)
  6. 6. Some  ways  to  think  about “CHANGE  AGENTS” SOCIAL  ENTREPRENEURS and SYSTEM  ENTREPRENEURS
  7. 7. Agents  for  change  in  complex  systems • Social  entrepreneurs’  goals  are  to  create  and   introduce    new  ideas,  processes,  and  products  into  an   existing  system  allowing  it  to  adapt  and  learn. • The  goal  of  system  entrepreneurs,  however,  is  to   create  change  at  the  broadest  system  level.  Their  goal   is  not  to  help  the  system  adapt,  but  to  help  the  system   transform. • System  change is  more  likely  when  BOTH these  kinds   of  entrepreneurship  exist  within  systems.
