Our Theoretical Framework
The field of Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship (SIE)
offers a new lens through which to view adaptive challenges
and an adaptive framework through which to collectively develop
new models and catalyze system transformation.
It is a human-centered, transdisciplinary, and adaptive framework
for addressing social, economic, and environmental challenges at a systemic level
using innovative approaches that are
collaborative, empowering, impactful, sustainable, and scalable.
The Adaptive SIE Framework for Systems Change
Based on an extensive review of the SIE & related literature;
conversations with leading faculty, practitioners, and pioneers in the U.S. and internationally; and reflecting on decades of our own related involvement,
we've identified four critical spheres that, when leveraged skillfully and synergistically, generate the conditions for system transformation.
