Recently I was invited to Shanghai to speak about the transformational design of businesses at Radical Design Week - Shanghai.
When we use the phrase social enterprise, we all intuitively understand that is in some way different from an orthodox view of how industrial enterprises operate, how they are organised, what is their role and purpose, by which I mean whom do they really serve? And, how in part they make their money. We have to ask therefore - what is the true nature of the social enterprise?
Recently I settled in to listen to In Business with BBC journalist Peter Day. Innovation and transformation of people's lives, economies, etc., is very much part of the No Straight Lines project so I was thrilled to hear Professor Jaideep Prabhu from the Cambridge University Judge Business school and Professor Anil Gupta from the Indian Institute of Management talk about Jugaad Innovation.
