Key course info

  • This course is designed as a hands-on course. It is designed so that every voice is heard, and collective intelligence is harnessed. So, participants should get ready to learn while doing and learning from each other. They will also learn various ways to facilitate this process.
  • While we will use the PEST, PESTEL and the Probability Impact Matrix we will work on different industries and on real case scenarios. Participants will learn how to introduce external factors that can impact the achievement of the sustainability goal into the matrix. We will be able to introduce complexity and system thinking where we learn how these factors interrelate with each other and at the same time we will use a multi stakeholder perspective that will help us on the development of 4 different scenarios for the future. The result of this process will make it possible to visualize the different possible roads to take, which will allow businesses to take better decisions that help their business in the future while being sustainable at the same time.
  • We offer participants the opportunity to adopt a systems-thinking mindset to better understand stakeholders needs and design more inclusive processes. Through this, we want our participants to adopt a new vision that holds sustainable impact and value for all stakeholders, both for businesses as well as public organizations.
