Value Creation: A Dialogue on Models and Methods

Value Creation: A Dialogue on Models and Methods

Value creation is the primary aim of any organization and is inherent to sustainable development.

Over the course of 2020 and 2021, ABIS - The Academy of Business in Society and our member Antwerp Management School (AMS) organized two Value Creation Roundtables to exchange knowledge on sustainable transformation and positive impact. A number of leading academics participated in the event, including Mark Kramer, Senior lecturer, Harvard Business School & Managing Director, FSG, Stuart Hart, Grossman Endowed Chair for Sustainable Business, University of Vermont, Robert Phillips, George Gardiner Professor in Business Ethics Schulich School of Business, York University, Jed Emerson, Founder, Blended Value Group, and Wayne Visser, Chair in Sustainable Transformation & Professor of Integrated Value, AMS. They were also joined by representatives from EY, PwC and Impact Institute in 2020 and Port of Antwerp, Johnson and Johnson, ABN AMRO and Value Balancing Alliance in 2021. The commitment of these organizations to sustainability is translating into changes to their value creation models.

In this white paper, researchers of the AMS Sustainable Transformation Lab researchers, Dr Wayne Visser, Jan Beyne and Ewald Van den Auwelant summarize and further elaborate on the concepts of value discussed during the roundtables. Download the report below to learn more about:
