Sustainable Business Model Design

Sustainable business model design takes a science-based system approach to designing businesses who are fit-for-the-future and generate meaningful and authentic impact in the world.  Join us for this ground-breaking innovative experiential course on Sustainable Business Model Design.

If you wish to have the possibility for wide-spread human wellbeing (what we refer to as 'flourishing'), you will need everyone, and especially people leading enterprises, to consciously think beyond short-term futures and self-interests. To enable flourishing, true sustainability, for the whole of society, we need to be way more intentional about how we design our enterprises with this goal in mind. The smart consensus is that it is most effective, fastest and least expensive overall to intentionally design your enterprise by creating a model of it, we call this a 'business model'. It's way faster to create a model than to build the real thing. By creating a model, you are deliberate in the design of that model. In this video, Ondine and Antony share why Sustainable Business Design is important

This course is based on the outcomes of a 5-year action research project conducted with over 800 entrepreneurs across multiple countries which explored the key components and processes needed to develop sustainable business models that meet the Sustainable Development Goals and go beyond. It is the first research of its kind globally.

During this course, we will explore Climate KICS’s newly released e-learning program How to Design a Sustainable Business Model from a trainer, coaches and facilitator perspective. It dives more deeply into the methodology, tools and approaches used within the e-learning course.

This Train-the-Trainer course takes place within the frame of the Climate-KIC Network of Climate Coaches. Interested to learn more about the Network of Coaches? Have a look here.

Background

Our Approach

This course is an applied experiential learning opportunity which requires hands-on practice and action/applied work to be completed between sessions. Participants will ‘learn by doing’ through the application of the content both personally and with businesses they coach.  Each participant will be required to find a business team to run a business modelling session during the course (between day 4 and day 5). This approach will enable participants to apply the course content directly into their day to day work while at the same time having the space to reflect with oneself and others, to deepen the learnings.

**In addition to the class times, you are required to do an additional 2-3 hours of action/ applied work between sessions.

Specific topics covered in this course include:

  • The Flourishing startup method, the journey of sustainable business model design
  • Fit for purpose business modelling and support tools and methods (including the Flourishing Business Canvas, the Golden Circle, Lean Start-Up)

LEAN4Flourishing

At Lean4Flourishing we understand that in our ever more complex, fast-paced and changing world, enterprises that strive to “do good” to “do well” will out-perform those that don’t – in all dimensions of performance and value creation. By aiming to co-create a range of benefit streams for multiple stakeholders, they will be more innovative, materially less risky and more resilient – creating more tri-profit: social, environmental and financial. Flourishing enterprises are simply better: fitter for the increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous future and able to increase the generation of social innovation.
