Abstract

Social innovation is a new solution to a community’s problems or needs. This concept is gaining traction in the management of development projects in Colombia given its relevance for the transformation of territories. In this regard, the Social Innovation Route is a methodology created by the Parque Científico de Innovación Social (Social Innovation Scientific Park) of UNIMINUTO that is developed in seven stages: enlisting, understanding, analyzing, creating, implementing, packaging, and scaling; developed in a way to build sustainable social innovations. This article presents how the Social Innovation Route Methodology has been implemented for the consolidation of entrepreneurship ecosystems, the supply of water to a community, and the strengthening of productive chains and its main results. Therefore, this document constitutes a methodological contribution for project managers and development project management institutions whose interest is to generate greater impact and sustainability of their initiatives.
