Stakeholders, Opportunities, and Risks in Responsible Innovation

Routinely working with a wide variety of industries and stakeholders, I often hear of a wide variety of interests in Responsible Innovation. After one conversation that was particularly wide-ranging and inspiring, I went through an exercise to map the cares, concerns, and opportunities that are integral to  the work of Responsible Innovation.

It’s pretty rare [for me] to come out of these exercises with something I’m truly happy with and feels “complete”. This is one of those times. After using 100% of the relevant terms I had listed and found a meaningful home for human rights at the center, I feel great about its outcome and I hope others can use it to inform conversations, strategy, and generative outcomes from operationalizing Responsible Innovation.
