Creating Shared Value
What You Can Expect
The concept of Shared Value opens up a new set of business opportunities to drive growth, productivity, and competitive advantage by incorporating social and environmental factors into core strategy and operations. Companies can create Shared Value at three levels: by reconceiving products and markets, by redefining productivity in the value chain, and by enhancing the business environment in the locations where the company operates. This program focuses on concrete tools for creating Shared Value, as well as actual examples of innovative organizations. Case studies include Yara in Africa, Discovery Health in South Africa, Walmart and CVS in the U.S., and Nestlé worldwide, among others.
