Newly published Handbook of Inclusive Innovation is co-edited by Professor Paul Tracey of Cambridge Judge and includes several contributions from the School.
A newly published book on inclusive innovation, co-edited by Paul Tracey, Professor of Innovation & Organisation at Cambridge Judge Business School, includes articles authored by several Cambridge Judge faculty and other experts.
The Handbook of Inclusive
Innovation: The Role of Organizations, Markets and Communities in Social
Innovation, published by Edward Elgar Publishing, looks at the “Grand
Challenges” of our time including poverty, extreme inequality, hunger and
climate change through a social innovation prism.
“Inclusive innovation is the
development of new ideas which aspire to create opportunities that enhance
social and economic wellbeing for disenfranchised members of society,”
says an introductory chapter to the book, co-authored by Paul, entitled “Inclusion
and innovation: a call to action”.
“We are hopeful that
management researchers, and business scholars more broadly, will adopt an
action-oriented approach to their scholarship, and define the success of their
work through its social impact outcomes.”
