Inclusive innovation measurement often focuses on human resource indicators related to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), or social cohesion indicators of inequalities. From this perspective, inclusive innovation is an organizational human resources strategy with employment targets that address barriers and increase the participation of underrepresented groups. However, meaningful inclusive innovation comprises diverse employees and community stakeholders.

Inclusive innovation involves organizations’ ideation and knowledge discovery, product and process development, technology adoption and deployment, governance, and social participation activities with a broad spectrum of communities, users, and stakeholders that the organizations’ touch, including those who may be displaced by the innovation outcomes. Inclusive innovation measurement, thus, comprises all aspects of the innovation process, barriers, and the conscious and unconscious biases and exclusionary activities of organizations and people.

This chapter proposes that inclusive innovation indicators are situational and differ within developed or developing countries. It provides an inclusive innovation conceptual framework and recommends measurement methods.

Looking forward to see you at the event.
