Course Overview

Revenue and Profit will always be the reasons why businesses can sustain themselves, without which they will not even exist. But companies can have higher value when they exist with Purpose and with Profit.

Some companies have Corporate Social and Responsibilities (purpose) built into their corporate missions and visions, but how does this translate into business value (profit). Leaders with business acumen need to have the right structured frameworks to systematically assess and decide what steps to take as a business to thrive and grow in a dynamic business environment.

This course equips company leaders looking to implement sustainability in their businesses by using the Business Model Canvas to uncover gaps / opportunities before prioritizing these and using Design Thinking to help them address these gaps / opportunities to put them on a better footing. Improvements can come in terms of branding, competitiveness, improved processes & productivity – all of which can help businesses improve their bottom-line.
