Abstract: Leaders face high, continuous, and sometimes contradicting demands from all different stakeholders. Managing all these demands is walking a fine line, which in today's changing world is not a straight one.
A network view that includes human intuition allows for an approach that is forward-looking in an increasingly interconnected, uncertain and dynamic world. Based on the latest academic works in finance, mathematics, as well as the social sciences, Dynamic Risk Assessment (DRA) provides the credibility to convince shareholders and investors of the potential in shared value, including financial potential.
Dynamic Risk Assessment offers a comprehensive and quantitative analysis to determine strategic focus for realizing this potential without significantly damaging short-term profitability, while taking into account the interrelated nature of the SDGs, the internal corporate environment, as well as the world that the client does business in.
An organization can base its core strategy, as well as philanthropic focus on the output of DRA, so that the entire company, from R&D to the C-suite to the charity department, is doing their part in making the most of the organizations’ internal and external connections.
