Economic development is rooted in disruption, not in equilibrium. And a powerful engine of economic development is innovation; but is this innovation always for the common good? The dark side of the extraordinary dynamism of innovation lies precisely in its destructive power. If simply left to market forces, it could lead to social chaos and great human suffering.
To face the challenges of our time, we must create the proper climate and culture to develop strong entrepreneurial drive. But, more than ever, we must give this entrepreneurial drive its ethical and societal dimensions. Responsible innovation means a more voluntary orientation towards the great problems of the 21st century, e.g. depletion of the planet’s resources, rising inequality, and new scientific developments potentially threatening freedom, democracy and human integrity. We need to transform our ceaseless creativity into real progress for humankind. In this respect, the rapid development of social innovation opens the door for new methods and practices.
In Responsible Innovation, Philippe de Woot challenges conventional ways of thinking. This book has the power to shift accepted norms in our ways of doing business.

"Innovative entrepreneurialism is essential for our future growth yet increasingly exists in a political (and possibly ethical) vacuum. Philippe de Woot's outstanding book shows us the way forward and the pitfalls to avoid."--Professor Eric Cornuel, Director and CEO, European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) "This book beautifully captures the relationship between entrepreneurial creativity and the urgent needs of our time. Existing examples give hope for effectively addressing the challenges of the 21st century. It also stresses the necessity to give our increasing techno-scientific power its ethical and societal dimensions.--Professor Henri Claude de Bettignies, Insead and Stanford University "The inspirations and thoughts of the author are more than relevant and appropriate for today's necessary and future spirit of entrepreneurship."--Alick Sytor, Secretary General of Belgian Association of Christian Business Leaders
