At the Business School of Auckland University Henning held a New Zealand lecture on values-based innovation management. Teachers and PHD students from different faculties and from Auckland University press attended and participated in a vivid discussion. One locally relevant topic was the tension between local embeddedness of values-driven entrepreneurs in New Zealand and global venture capital firms seeking profitable exit to maximise returns on investment. Another discussion revolved around the challenge to adequately discuss the dynamics between personal and organisational values on the one hand, and intented value-add (including ecological, social and economic benefits) of an organisation on the other hand.

The theme of this years International Conference on Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility in Berlin inspired us to contribute a presentation entitled "Wicked Problems need Virtuous Solutions - Normative Innovation to Establish Sustainable Value Networks". To “innovate for sustainability” we need to go beyond process, product, and organizational innovation into strategic (business model) innovation and normative value innovation. Value innovation builds on the introduction of new normative orientations into an existing business ecosystem. Our work delineates this new theoretical approach that is illustrated with case studies on different modes of sustainability innovation. On the normative level of innovation we discuss the case of collaborative business modeling to create a network-based energy region in Germany. On the strategic level “Green Power Marketing” provides and example how to differentiate branding and create a new business model. On the instrumental level the "Carbon Footprint Calculator" exemplifies an innovative tool to measure and reduce environmental impact. Here you may download the presentation!
