Have you ever heard of a term - Public Benefit Corporation?
I learnt about it only recently when I read an article that Veeva became the first public company to convert to a public benefit corporation.
This sparked my curiosity and I immediately started to do research on this new concept. What does it mean to be a public benefit corporation?
I summarized my key takeaways in a short 2 minute video.
What are your examples of purpose driven companies?
In this vastly changing world it's sometimes hard for organizations to imagine having a long-term (e.g. 3 years) plan. Some would simply say that it doesn't make sense in their business to think so far ahead.
Well, Amdi Krogh who is currently leading Maersk North Europe Operations office would argue with you for a bit.
Why? Because in 2017 there were similar discussions within Amdi's leadership team, but today after the 3-year breakthrough plan is implemented and shown its impressive results, doubts are gone.
It is an immense pleasure to share with you a story written by Amdi on how Maersk North Europe Operations organization implemented their 3-year breakthrough business plan based on Hoshin Kanri principles.
As an initiator of this plan, I am extremely pleased to see the business results which would have not been possible without hard work of the whole North Europe Operations organization always supported by the dedicated management and leadership teams!
It's December! The time for reflection and set-up of new objectives.
While I like the concept of noting down your New Year's resolutions, too often I hear vaguely defined sentences, which I doubt help people to achieve more.
I believe that New Year's resolutions shouldn't be a long list of actions you want to do, but rather a few personal breakthroughs which will stretch you.
With my experience of using Hoshin Kanri model in business, I wrote a blog post on how to define meaningful New Year resolutions which I think could drive personal breakthroughs.
