Programme architectures are designed to facilitate exchange among corporations and other stakeholders. Exchanges are segmented according to the following concepts.
Change experiments are pilot projects at the firm level that study the impact of transitioning to a stakeholder-oriented organisation and aim to further the organisation’s sustainability journey.
Projects are co-designed by organisational stakeholders and thought leaders to develop new processes, systems and, most importantly, a new organisational culture. They are unique in that these projects boast:
- Interdisciplinary knowledge from experts in management, finance, engineering, environmental science, and neuropsychology;
- Scientific rigor of the experimental methods
- Action-oriented engagement with firms and their stakeholders.
Areas of application include but are not limited to leadership development, integrated strategy, incentive and control systems, and supply chains.
A Co-Laboratory is a 3-year global, cross-disciplinary, cooperative program that brings together business leaders and academia experts through thematic workshops and experimentations within organisations. The aim of the program is to speed up and facilitate the emergence of innovative forms of enterprise capable of moving the frontier of business beyond narrow sustainability concerns.
The Co-Lab program designed by the Leonardo Centre enables the participants to explore, share, co-design and assess solutions to rethink the logic of the enterprise across all its key dimensions: leadership mindsets, cultural change, governance models, strategic decision making, R&D strategy and sustainable innovation, incentive and control systems, value chain partnerships.
Drawing upon expertise across Imperial, bespoke one-year educational programmes can be developed for senior managers. Programmes will explore how social and environmental principles can be embedded in all key dimensions of the enterprise: leadership mindsets, cultural change, governance models, strategic decision making, R&D strategy and sustainable innovation, incentive and control systems, value chain partnerships.
The experiential journey is designed to shape a new generation of conscious leaders, capable of steering systemic transformational change. This change is focused on global sustainability and well-being.
A digital innovation platform for stakeholder consultation and engagement in innovative, transformational projects. The aim of building this platform is that of integrating the aspirations, knowledge, and perspectives of the full array of a firm’s stakeholders (employees, customers, investors, academia, etc.) in the creation of the sustainable enterprise.
The platform will allow stakeholders to contribute to all phases of the innovation process: sensing, ideation, selection, and implementation.
System Dynmaic Simulations
The Leonardo Centre is developing policy-informing, user-friendly, simulation tools for business and public organisations that evaluate the efficacy of alternative sustainability strategic stances and theorise the impact on economic and non-economic objectives.
These simulation tools will allow organisations to integrate sustainability behaviours into the strategic roadmap devised to achieve their financial and non-financial goals.
