Rethinking Disruptive and Social Innovation: The Impact Model
Muma Business Review • Volume 7 • 2023 • pp. 073-078
The leadership literature often emphasizes innovation coupled with disruption as a source of competitive advantage based on the assumption that, without it, organizations constrain social progress in organizations. We identify a new model that comprehensively considers not only disruptive innovation but also the social impact of future decision-making. We create a comprehensive framework which we call the impact model. There is a lack of an effective model that can support internal entrepreneurs in their social innovation. This new model fills the gap, taking organizations in the direction of training internal entrepreneurs, thus known as intrapreneurs, to start initiatives that affect society and ensure their survival in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Organizations cannot innovate without taking into concern diversity, equity, and inclusion. On the other hand, diversity, equity, and inclusion should not be tantamount in place for innovation. Organizations must address diversity, equity, and inclusion as they innovate and evaluate what becomes disruptive for both a product and social concern.
