A two-day immersive workshop from ACCSR and Incite (South Africa), supported by the Shared Value Project and IAG. You will leave this course with new tools and perspectives to drive shared value strategies more effectively.
Well beyond compliance and traditional corporate social responsibility, shared value is a business growth strategy. It drives growth by addressing societal challenges – at scale – as a business proposition. Shared value strategies require us to rethink productivity across the value chain, reconceive products and markets, and create enabling environments by partnering on cluster developments.
The sustainability landscape is shifting – fast. Compliance with ESG standards is increasingly assumed and standardised; corporate social investment is reinventing itself in the form of business diplomacy; and leading organisations are exploring shared value tools to catalyse innovation and competitive power.
In this two-day workshop, you will use theory and more than 20 practical casesfrom across the world to:
- Deepen your understanding of sustainability and the shifting competitive landscape
- Learn and apply strategy tools that will help you position your company’s response
- Identify shared value innovations for your business using Incite’s Shared Value Innovator™
- Learn and apply the VILROS™ materiality analysis
- Explore and troubleshoot the five steps needed to build an effective shared value culture
across your organisation.
This course will be led by Jonathan Hanks of Incite (www.incite.co.za). Incite is the first Shared Value Initiative affiliate in Africa, and has developed a close working relationship with the Initiative and has participated in and contributed to their workshops in the UK and USA.
