    Business and the new prosperity – current thinking on the private sector and sustainability

    Wednesdays, Trinity Term; 13:00.

     
    A three part seminar series exploring the latest on how sustainability challenges affect the private sector, and how business is responding.  The series draws on the 2011-2013 research and publications of Dr Michael ‘Mick’ Blowfield, Senior Research Fellow at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment.
     
    Seminar 1: Business in society: past, present, future
    2 May 2012.
    An exploration of the changing role of business in society, and how that role is managed.  It covers the nature of business’ role, the emergence of corporate responsibility as a management competency, and how sustainability affects our fundamental assumptions about what business is for.

    Seminar 2: Taking transition seriously
    9 May 2012.
    Discussing the transition of business in the creation of a resource-constrained society and the redefining of prosperity. The seminar examines the process of transition, historical lessons on transition failure and success, and the main challenges that business needs to be aware of in the short, medium and long term.

    Seminar 3: Creating new prosperities
    16 May 2012.
    An investigation of how business can, might, or won’t change as it seeks to prosper in resource-constrained societies.  The seminar covers strategy, performance, capital, management, and business education, and discusses if the search for resource-constrained prosperity represents the defining turnaround challenge for business in the twenty-first century.

    The Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment,

    University of Oxford, Hayes House, 75 George Street,
