>> Where will your marketplace be in 2015?
>> How do you design and manage systematic change?
>> Are you challenging your basic assumptions--do you really know what they are?
>> What are the fundamental needs that your organizations meet?
>> What other ways--and competitors--exist to satisfy these needs more sustainably than you?
>> Are you learning fast enough in this fast-changing environment?
>> Are you leading from the “middle” of your organization?
Come to this unique workshop, and we will challenge you and your team to think more creatively and effectively about your organization’s true value within a socially fragile and resource-constrained 21st century.
In our workshops, we focus on how economic challenges, sustainability, and social concerns can drive strategies to create and deliver value to a wider variety of stakeholders. The goal is to shift your thinking about organization issues from a narrow focus on sustainability towards a broader framework for building Integrative Sustainable Management practices.
Participants will come prepared to work with strategy issues within their own organization. During the workshop, you will engage with others in forming, testing and re-framing your business case. In essence, you will learn how to ask better questions.
Our next workshop will be held on September 24 and 25.
Fee per attendee, including tuition, materials and meals:
$1,250.00 (for profit organizations)
$850.00 (non-profit organizations)
Note: There is a 30% discount for additional members of your team.
