Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by Gerard George, Dean and Lee Kong Chian Chair Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Lee Kong Chian School of Business, Singapore Management University, Singapore, Ted Baker, George F. Farris Professor of Entrepreneurship, Rutgers Business School – Newark and New Brunswick, US and Honorary Professor, University of Cape Town, South Africa, Paul Tracey, Professor of Innovation and Organization, Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK and Professor of Entrepreneurship, Department of Management and Marketing, University of Melbourne, Australia and Havovi Joshi, Director, Centre for Management Practice, Singapore Management University, Singapore

The Handbook of Inclusive and Social Innovation: The Role of Organizations, Markets and Communities offers a comprehensive review of research on inclusive innovation to address systemic and structural issues – the “Grand Challenges” of our time. With 27 contributions from 57 scholars, the Handbook provides frameworks and insights by summarising current research, and highlights emerging practices and scalable solutions. The contributions highlight a call to action and place social impact at the heart of theory and practice. It will be an invaluable resource for academics, practitioners, and policymakers who champion social inclusion and emphasize innovative approaches to addressing sustainable development goals.

‘Bravo! Inclusive innovation is one of the most important topics in management research. Yet, there has been no standard reference available for mapping out the topic and providing a systematic discussion of what we know and what remains to be done. In this essential contribution, George, Baker, Tracey and Joshi have brought together many of the leading scholars on the topic and have provided a much needed overview. This will undoubtedly become the key reference in inclusive innovation.’
– Nelson Phillips, Imperial College Business School, London, UK
