Integrating Sustainability into Strategy, Design and Practice
April 20, 2011
Does your company have what it takes to stand the test of time?
Most businesses in today’s rapidly changing marketplace are grasping the importance of sustainability. Whether willingly or grudgingly, organizations are accepting responsibility for the impact they have on the natural environment, the people they employ and the societies they operate in.
They’re implementing recycling initiatives, discussing the triple bottom line and considering their impact on the physical world around them.
These companies are certainly on the right track, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll win out in the long run. Organizations must develop a comprehensive management approach that fully integrates triple bottom line commitment into their strategies, organization designs and management practices.
What companies need is a “management reset.”
In this Webcast, Ed Lawler and Chris Worley will explain why companies must reorganize their structure and their approach to management in order to become truly sustainably effective.
