For every post that makes it to this blog, I write at least three, sometimes more. That means that on a regular basis, I delete some of my favorite (almost good) writing. It turns out that this is an incredibly...
L’économie collaborative se présente comme une alternative au capitalisme. Son principe repose sur le passage d’une économie basée sur la soumission des consommateurs et la rivalité des producteurs à une économie valorisant la collaboration entre les utilisateurs d’un bien ou service. Michel Bauwens et la fondation Peer to Peer (P2P) ont publié en fin 2012 un ouvrage qui propose un panorama des grandes tendances actuelles et des expérimentations en cours . Le propos est (...)
Across the planet, new technologies and business models are decentralizing power and placing it in the hands of communities and individuals. "We are seeing technology-driven networks replacing bureacratically-driven hierarchies," says VC and futurist Fred Wilson, speaking on what to expect in the next ten years. View the entire 25-minute video below (it's worth it!) and then check out the 21 innovations below.
The idea of business model innovation — that a company could launch a new business model never conceived of before, or transform an existing business model — has long captivated business leaders. Yet, executives are often held back by vested interests in their current approach: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But as global trends — environmental, social, political, technological — continue to shift the foundations of our current business models, incremental innovation will become less effective in enabling companies, industries and whole economies to adapt and succeed. There is an urgent need for fundamentally different approaches to value creation.
SustainAbility has long recognized and advocated the need for fundamental shifts in business practice, including in business models, both to drive necessary progress toward, and to unlock business value from sustainability. Such shifts are all the more urgent and relevant today, given slow progress on sustainable development broadly and accelerating innovation and disruption (both positive and negative) already playing out in many industries.
That is the basis for this report, exploring the role and practice of business model innovation in the context of sustainability. In it, we break down the innovative models we’re seeing, trying to better understand their origins, mechanics and implications. In doing so, we hope to induce more focused conversation about business model innovation, going beyond merely marveling at each new car-sharing company or crowdfunding site, and delving deeper into how such innovation comes about, and how we can catalyze more of it.
This report aims to help by offering inspiration and reflection, by raising issues and questions for further exploration, and by providing a framework for ongoing discussion. It grows out of SustainAbility’s past work on social entrepreneurship and innovation (supported by the Skoll Foundation and others) and on the evolving role of the private sector in sustainable development (via our 2012 Regeneration Roadmap project and its final report, Changing Tack), and responds to the growing emphasis on systems change and collaboration as key enablers of a sustainable future.
Alas, this is the wrong question. The only way to get rid of the fear is to stop doing things that might not work, to stop putting yourself out there, to stop doing work that matters. No, the right question...
Les mutations liées au numérique sont en marche dans tous les secteurs. Mais pour que la France concurrence les autres pays d’Europe, il faut encore qu’institutions publiques et privées s’ouvrent aux opportunités.
