Rethinking Innovation and Scale

Host Organization: Stanford PACS


An organization, and ultimately its impact, can be fundamentally defined by how it manages the dual challenge of innovating and building on its existing strengths, or ‘scaling’ as Johanna Mair and Christian Seelos suggest in their new book, Innovation and Scaling for Impact.

In their book, drawing on a decade of research, Christian and Johanna transcend widely held misconceptions, forcing us to rethink how social sector organizations create value. They detail innovation archetypes that effectively sidestep these pathologies and blend innovation with scaling.

On June 5, join the authors on Stanford’s campus as they discuss the way forward for organizations on the frontlines of social change. Johanna will moderate a discussion with Dr. Roy Steiner, senior director of the Intellectual Capital team for Omidyar Network, Renee Kaplan, Chief Strategy Officer at the Skoll Foundation, Jim Bildner, CEO of the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, and co-author Christian Seelos, on innovation, learning, and systems-level impact.
