The Power of Integration in a Complex and Connected Age
  • Dr. Amy Zalman - Professor of Foresight and CEO, Prescient

The conditions that shaped success in the industrial age are not those that will shape the future, as the IIRC's mission to expand the concept of value and promote integrate reporting explicitly acknowledges. The world has entered an age of complexity and connectivity. These qualities are evident across systems. Success in such a world will flow from integrated thinking and reporting — the kind of thinking that grasps flows, connections and interdependencies —and from decisions made on the basis of integration.

Workshop 3
Purpose and Profit: The changing value paradigm for business leaders

89% of executives agree that organizations need to shift their focus to wider value creation, instead of the traditional shareholder focus of the past. In shifting their views to a broader one, organizations are reviewing their key stakeholder relationships and assessing what value means for them. The desired time horizons for strategic planning are getting longer and the notion that true value comes from an interconnected and interdependent organization is gaining ground. The session will launch the 4th research output in the Value of Values research project.

Join this Panel discussion to:

  • Discover the 10 Steps to better value creation
  • Enhance your financial and broader performance information to better communicate how you create value over time
  • Learn from practical case studies
