Chapter 2: Responsible innovation as a catalyst of the firm innovation process
This chapter explores the concept of responsible innovation, examines its limitations and links it to the discussion of firm innovation process. In this chapter we first provide an overview of the field, followed by the discussion of purpose, process and outcome of innovation. Innovation is described as a complex process in the context of uncertainty where design space occupies an important role. We argue that with the high levels of uncertainty involved in radical or disruptive innovations, there is a need to keep design space open, allowing anticipation and reflexivity to happen to achieve a responsible solution.
