Innovation — what does that mean?
One of the things that we at CIP believe is that ‘innovation’ means continually innovating. It DOES NOT mean innovating once, then never again. There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ or a ‘silver bullet’ that will fit community, in every instance, all the time. Communities change rapidly; their co-ops have to change with them!
For some great insight into continual innovation and the way it should work, check out this article by Rosanne Haggerty and Becky Kanis Margiotta in the World Economic Forum asking “How can social entrepreneurs embrace continuous innovation?”
We think it asks the right questions.
