Concept note: Social innovation is receiving increasing attention as a response to grand challenges and wicked problems. Social innovation occurs in many different forms ranging from action principles to whole new organizational fields, and it can be promoted by firms, nonprofits and government. Because of this richness and complexity, social innovation remains undertheorized. To address this gap, we explore the four theoretical lenses above to identify synergies and boundaries, and to promote theorizing across the lenses.
