Afternoon Pre-Conference Masterclass: Impact-Led Design

Impact-Led Design – How to Design Organisations and Govern Strategy for Social Impact

Afternoon Masterclass
1.30PM – 5.00PM, Thursday 9 August 2018, Adelaide Convention Centre

More than ever organisations are required to do more than just manage risks and mitigate negative impacts. Maintaining a social license to operate often requires an organisation to measure, manage and maximise the positive social impact it generates. In this brave new world leading organisations are finding substantial competitive advantage in designing their structure and strategy around social impact – both maximising positive impact and mitigating negative impact. The rise of sustainability and integrated reporting, accounting for six capitals and Creation of Shared Value are all responses to the need to understand impact.
In this session, Ross Wyatt and Kevin Robbie will provide essential best practice approaches to impact-led design, to ensure your organisation stays ahead of the pack and provides a positive legacy for its stakeholders.
