"Social Innovation: Design thinking is increasingly recognized as an important skill for those in any field, but for social entrepreneurs attempting to address seemingly intractable problems, it becomes an incredibly powerful tool. IDEO's Human-Centered Design toolkit draws on a number of proven approaches to provide a comprehensive, concise guide to inclusive innovation, covering everything from interviewing best practices to rapid prototyping. The Stanford Social Innovation Review and New York Times' Fixes column provide excellent coverage of successful models and emerging best practices.
Business Fundamentals: Within the growing field of entrepreneurship education, a pair of closely-linked tools are increasingly being used in conjunction to launch startups: Steve Blanks' customer development process and Alexander Osterwalder's Business Model Canvas. Both are hands-on, highly practical approaches that provide a clear path to starting and refining a new business or project. Organizational skills in human resource management, finance and accounting, business/nonprofit law, marketing, fundraising and impact measurement are also needed for successful social entrepreneurship, and best provided by professors or subject-matter experts."
"a new generation of social entrepreneurs using this technology in imaginative ways to tackle complex social challenges. "
