Abstract

This chapter deals with social responsibility, enterprise policy/governance, management, and their innovation. Several different approaches to strategic planning are analyzed. They include planning and configuration schools of thought. Innovative configuration of enterprises encourages improved organization of enterprises’ policy/governance, management, and operation and encourages innovation.

It carries social responsibility into effect within the invention-innovation-diffusion process.
