Chapter 15: To what extent should the perspective of responsible innovation irrigate the organization as a whole?
This chapter deals with responsibility as part of innovation in organizations. The application of responsible innovation in organizations requires a closer analysis of different structures and their corresponding innovation strategy and process. The management of the responsible innovation process involves an engagement with stakeholders and members of the general public to determine whether a potential new product or service is acceptable and thus responsible according to social, economic and environmental criteria. It is important, on the one hand, to consider how the structure of an organization will impact the effective deployment of a responsible innovation strategy. On the other hand, the role of the innovator requires a closer analysis to determine whether it is evolving into a role of moderator at the center of dialogue between stakeholders and members of the general public to collect the most relevant information required to make the best-informed decision as regards a potential innovation’s responsibility and acceptability.
