Summary

The book highlights the systemic negative impact of a consumption and profit focussed economy and introduces an original model – SOCIETALByDesing – for an alternative to relentless resource depletion, through an agile, adaptive, people and environment respectful enterprise, which embraces a balanced and holistic purpose to serve people, planet and positive legacy, as the heart of its reason of being.

The book captures the Zeitgeist and concerns of the new Millennium and offers a fresh view on how business can be successful by benefiting the wider society it should serve. The original SOCIETALByDesign Model positions purpose, principles, framework and current techniques for a modern business to utilise and holistically integrate benefits for employees, society and environment thought its products and services. The SOCIETALByDesign Model links purpose and business and synthesises an operating model that can be adopted, adapted and applied by any enterprise wishing to focus on shared prosperity and the good of people and planet instead of profit at any price.

The book is intended for business practitioners such as business founders and owners, angel investors, entrepreneurs, portfolio managers of investment funds, managers and leaders of companies large and small.

It is also helpful for external business and organisation development consultants, mentors, coaches and specialists who provide services and expertise to enterprises design, change and optimisation.

Because the book provides a practitioner’s perspective on business, it can also be useful to students, lecturers and academics.
