Designing for Planet, People and Profit

Come and join our Summer UK Community event. Joining from outside the UK? No problem, we’re virtual after all! These community events are free to attend for all.
The way we live and work is having an unsustainable impact on people and planet. We have already crossed 5 of 9 planetary boundaries according to the Stockholm Resilience Centre, and many of the world’s population do not live in the ‘safe and just’ space as defined in Kate Raworth’s doughnut economics model. There is increasing interest in designing and operating organisations and business to operate in a more sustainable way – whether that be net-positive, regenerative or a certified model such as BCorp. What does this mean in practice from an organization design practitioner perspective?
In this session we will briefly cover key concepts in relation to sustainability, introduce an organization maturity model, and then in working groups explore the sustainability implications on organizations through the lenses of purpose, governance, leadership & talent, operating structure, and culture and mindset, drawing on inspirational practice case studies and your own experiences and perspectives.
The session will be facilitated by Mark Lancelott, who is a Senior Client Partner at Korn Ferry where he co-leads Sustainability for the EMEA region. He is also an adjunct member of faculty at Ashridge Hult, and previously set-up and ran their Designing Operating Models programme with Andrew Campbell, and co-authored the Operating Model Canvas.
