Interest in social innovation, novel or significantly improved ways of solving social problems, is growing, particularly as it relates to social entrepreneurs who dedicate their lives to doing well by doing good. Yet, the literature on how to become more socially innovative is patchy at best, without agreement or a distinct, unified body of knowledge. To bridge this gap, we draw on existing literature to weave together practical advice and a host of mechanisms that can be utilised to increase innovativeness, from distant search to diversifying learning, recognising that social innovation is not a panacea and more needs to be done to ensure social entrepreneurs do no harm in their quest for social good.
