Is your company seeking to move up the business sustainability scale? Are you searching for that singular ‘silver bullet’ or ‘quick fix’ that will solve a specific problem? Or is the organization and its management committed to a more continuous learning mindset change?
The reality is that executives too often focus on the ‘quick fix’ that will bridge the obstacles faced in the moment, with a simple goal to get back to ‘business as usual’. The questions might include: How do we mitigate this environmental/social risk, or how do we patch this hole in our supply?
In this case, sustainability action shows up as a ‘fix’ instead of a ‘change’. Our professional consulting experience has shown that true business sustainability does not result from singular action. Determining the criteria and right-fit tools that will move the company further along the business sustainability learning curve requires long-term commitment to change.
