We often call things innovative. We talk about innovative people, innovative organizations, innovative products, or innovative business models. But what are we trying to convey when we use this label? We have witnessed—in workshops, at conferences, and in discussions with colleagues—how unproductive it is to argue over subjective interpretations of innovation. The ambiguity around the term is a strong barrier to learning and knowledge accumulation and to making productive decisions.

In this session, we will take a closer look at how and with which consequences innovations are enacted in social enterprises. We will challenge the myth that innovation is good and more is better and reflect on organizational pathologies that make innovation unproductive.
