Setting up Positive Impact Partnerships
There is a commonly shared agreement worldwide that current economic models are in crisis. Citizens demand from their governments solutions to social, environmental and economic problems, while customers and employees demand from the businesses accountability and demonstrable enduring Positive Impact on the communities that they operate in.
At the same time, governments, businesses and donors acknowledge the fact that:
• Healthy and thriving communities mean increased wealth for everyone involved
• Single players acting in isolation are unable to deliver enduring and impactful solutions
• A more selfless approach is required: concerted efforts that bring together corporates, government and other interest groups, ready to relinquish the "lion's share" and work for a greater goal.
For the past two years, leveraging on Palladium’s unique experience in strategy management, impact investing, and developing projects, Dr. Robert Kaplan together with our research team and other renowned professors, have dedicated time to research and design Positive Impact solutions. These help organizations to become Positive Impact Focused by going beyond the traditional CSR approach of throwing money at a problem” to a new approach that encompasses:
• Embedding “Doing Good” into the strategy of your organization by formalizing processes and behaviors to garner the support of all employees.
• Identifying and leveraging opportunities for growth in bottom-of-the-pyramid markets.
• Assessing your value chain to identify opportunities for collaboration with third parties from the private or public sector.
• Establishing and managing alliances to address community issues with mutually beneficial outcomes.
• Setting up sound measuring and monitoring systems to be able to demonstrate social and economic impact.
The training will walk the participants through the tools and methodologies required to set up Positive Impact Partnerships to bring different stakeholders together in mutually beneficial ways in order to maximize their economic, social and environmental value with measurable and evidence-based results.
How can this approach benefit the private sector?
• Learn how to grow the business in a sustainable way.
• Understand how to ensure that your stakeholders, suppliers and the community all benefit from your Strategy.
• Evolve your CSR strategy into a fully-blown initiative for growth by investing in large-scale projects whose impact will be much superior to a limited CSR initiative.
How can this approach benefit the public sector?
• Realize economic growth at local and country level by engaging with a variety of stakeholders, most notably with the private sector.
• Implement enduring social change for all the complex issues that require the intervention of a multitude of stakeholders.
• Identify innovative financing solutions to solve social challenges and close the gap between the available budgets and the intended benefits.
Who should attend?
• Strategy executives, country directors, program managers, and any other private or public sector professionals that are required to:
> Identify avenues of growth in their corporation by engaging other public or private sector players, while improving positively and impactfully the communities that they operate in.
> Engage as a public sector organization with the private sector in a meaningful way to creatively address challenges facing their citizens.
