Assignment 2 (continuation from discussion 1) from previous
Modern consumers are increasingly demanding that organizations not only meet the needs of those they serve today but also the needs of future generations. In order to survive, organizations must develop a sustainable model that incorporates social responsibility. Studies, such as those by Kanzah (2013), show that companies who adopt sustainability practices that address environmental issues, societal issues, and workforce development positively impact short-term efficiency and operations management. These organizations also reduce risk. Such results indicate that developing an organizational sustainability strategy is not a moral obligation but also a business imperative.
To prepare, begin by thinking about the organization you have chosen that could benefit from applying both the concepts of sustainability and strategic thinking for which you would like to create a sustainable solution. Review the Peter Senge course text. Identify an issue that interests you that may provide an “opportunity hook” into exploring the underlying systemic relationships and business models that Senge argues may be unsustainable.
Submit approximately a 2-paragraph SSP proposal. In your proposal, identify the organization you have selected and provide background on its history and present position within its industry. Be sure to identify two of the organization’s main competitors. Then specify its relevance for study, place the organization in the context of the course, providing supporting evidence/reference(s). Use proper APA citation(s), grammar.
