Effective Partnerships Promote Social Innovation

Philanthropic organizations and housing associations could scale their impact and further their social missions by supporting social innovation of other individuals and groups.

This means chucking off their mental picture as innovators and transforming the way they think, collaborate, and organize themselves. If large charities and housing associations want to secure the benefits of innovation they need to recognize and support innovations that stem outside their organization, in lieu of establishing new ideas internally.
