The growing movement of what can be succinctly described as "new ideas that solve social problems" is evolving at an unforeseen pace and we are witnessing an unprecedented increase in the volume of social innovations as well as the types of approach taken. In this book we begin by defining a series of variables to help analyse how, when and why social innovation can be most effective. Then, using these variables we go on to analyse four inspiring examples of social innovation. Drawing on this analysis we conclude by offering some reflections and insights on the key parameters that help identify those social innovations that have the potential to bring about the much needed systemic change to resolve today's challenges.
