Managing Values for Innovation, cover of the International Journal for Innovation Management
Introducing our IJIM Special Issue on Managing Values for Innovation, this editorial article shows to what extent values are an inevitable moment of innovation-related activities. We illustrate their practicality to promote rather than handicap innovation and clarify their potential to change. The explanatory power of a values-based approach, its generative potential and its emancipatory impact motivate further research and development.

A values-based approach to strategic stakeholder management ensures that the course of strategic decisions is not only determined by short-lived attitudes, interests and the best deal negotiators may get, but that it is driven by long-term objectives of diverse participants. Differentiating three forms of stakeholder management (defensive, integrative, overarching), we show how to clarify and develop stakeholder values and exemplifies how to adapt methods of stakeholder analysis and management.

Tools are not neutral means for unaffected purposes. When designing the new, they prompt whether fundamental ideas and assumptions are reflected from the outset, or whether they remain hidden, so that innovation projects cannot exploit their potential. How can tools not only support creativity, but also reflexivity and help to provide orientation?

Innovation management falls short in solving urgent societal problems, if it neglects the power of networks and the values of their constituent actors. We present a theoretical framework and facilitation methods for values-based network and business model innovation. Both have been applied in an exemplary workshop on regional energy networks in Germany.

The values-based view on innovation applies values as a source, lever, and orientation mark for innovation activities. Notions of the desirable are taken from the periphery to the core of organisational value creation and renewal. Cases of Aravind Eye Care System and the retail company Otto Group illustrate and advance the discussion and show implications.
