The world’s social, ecological and economic  problems are so complex and diverse that there will never be a “one-size-fits-all” model for  social innovation. The very nature of social  innovation as a new, better way of solving  social problems means that it is not even in the  interest of social innovation advocates to create  tidy definitions, but rather to create environments  that allow for the process of creative  destruction with a social purpose to prosper.  Inspired by a desire to deepen our understanding  of the role of social innovation in  addressing today’s most pressing challenges,  authors Heloise Buckland and David Murillo  explore four inspiring cases and define a new  set of variables to help better understand the  conditions under which social innovation can be most effective. These variables can be  helpful for investors, governments, academic  centres, foundations and individual entrepreneurs  interested in measuring the potential of  any given social innovation to bring about the  much-needed systemic change to solve today’s  complex challenges. This book builds on a track record of  research and education in corporate social  responsibility and social entrepreneurship at  ESADE Business School’s Institute of Social  Innovation.  Building on an understanding of the key  characteristics and challenges faced by social  entrepreneurs, here authors undertake a deeper  analysis of social innovation.
