In July, we guest-blogged for the Belgian These Days Blogs, creating a dictionary of terms related to the process of social innovation, which now increasingly takes place, ‘outside the corporate form’.
It was published in 3 parts: one, two, and three.
For more information, and more concepts, see our P2P Business section.
A useful add-on are the 10 Laws of Innovation, posted by John Thackara:
Power Law 1: Donâ€™t think â€œnew productâ€? – think social value.
Power Law 2: Think social value before â€œtechâ€?.
Power Law 3: Enable human agency. Design people into situations, not out of them.
Power Law 4: Use, not own. Possession is old paradigm.
Power Law 5: Think P2P, not point-to-mass.
Power Law 6: Donâ€™t think faster, think closer.
Power Law 7: Donâ€™t start from zero. Re-mix what’s already out there.
Power Law 8: Connect the big and the small.
Power Law 9: Think whole systems (and new business models, too).
Power Law 10: Think open systems, not closed ones.
