 A SIX WEEKS ONLINE PROGRAM FOR BUSINESS LEADERS

SIX MODULES TO ACCELERATE THE SHIFT

This program runs over six weeks - October 3 till November 11, 2022 - in six modules to allow learning in parallel to your daily business. The program is based on the book Better Business Better Future by Elisabet Lagerstedt (2022), who is also your mentor and guide on this journey. Week 1-3 focuses on the WHY of Better Business, while week 4-6 focuses on the HOW. A new module is released every week and can be completed in your own time. 

WEEK 1
The Sustainability Revolution

Here, we will help you wrap your head around the Sustainability Revolution, as understood through The Great Acceleration. Planetary boundaries are now being exceeded beyond what is known as safe for life on Earth. Action is required. 

WEEK 2
The Path Beyond Business As Usual

In this module we will explore the path beyond business as usual. Because business as usual will not bring us the future that we want. This road however remains elusive to many. Here, we outline a clear path ahead.

WEEK 3
Re-envisioning The Future

Business is currently at an inflection point, where the Sustainability Revolution is expected to be as transformative as the digital revolution before it. We explore the  immense potential for those who dare to proactively step up to the challenge.

WEEK 4
Learning From The Sustainability Trailblazers

The future is not evenly distributed - the pioneers are far ahead already as the early majority is now moving. There is however still time to act. Learning from the trailblazers - like Patagonia, Interface, Unilever, Orsted, IKEA and Oatly - will provide valuable insights into their strategic journeys.

WEEK 5
Understanding The Strategic Playing Fields

In this module you will learn to grasp the three strategic playing fields and five strategic intents of sustainability trailblazers. You will also take time to benchmark your own business towards the trailblazers, and draft your own action plan.

WEEK 6
Realizing That It Starts With You

The focus of this last module is you. Because this is where it starts - with ourselves. We will look into how our current beliefs may hinder us on the way. How we might unconsciously sabotage our own good intentions. And how we can step up to the challenge of our lifetime.

 THE BETTER BUSINESS ACCELERATION PROGRAM

AN EXPERIENCE BEYOND BUSINESS AS USUAL

This program requires 2 hours of your time per week for 6 weeks, plus three live online sessions for Q&A, experience exchange and learning integration in week 1, 3 and 6. All inspired by the learning experience of some of the best business schools in the world.

Each module presents 3-6 short videos, additional text and links for optional deep dive, and questions for reflection to help you connect the material to your own business context. View the videos, read the texts, follow the links, and do the work in your own pace.

This course presents brand new case studies of true Sustainability Trailblazers - such as Patagonia, Interface, Unilever, IKEA, Orsted, and Oatly. You will learn from their transformational journeys from business as usual, and their strategic choices over time.

The workbook will help you connect the course content to the challenges in your industry and business. You will also benchmark your business towards the trailblazers, and leave with a draft of your own action plan.
