Cranfield University came to GlobeScan with a mission – they wanted to understand what needs to be done to unlock opportunities for sustainable entrepreneurship, and they needed a way to crowdsource ideas on the topic from a vast range of stakeholders. Their goal was the final milestone concluding EU-InnovatE, an EU-funded research project investigating the innovative and entrepreneurial roles of individuals and organisations to shape a green economy. Together we embarked on the Sustainability Innovation Exchange. We coupled GlobeScan’s experience in...
During the US Presidential campaign, the then-candidate Donald Trump consistently touted his business credentials as an asset for how he would be successful as the nation’s Chief Executive. We have now experienced the Trump administration for over 60 days, and it is interesting to assess the manner in which he is governing compared to what we know to be the tenets of successful corporate leadership.

The trust deficiency that many businesses are facing is an underlying threat to their license to operate, that also undermines the reputation equity. Trust has become such a critical strategic issue that it needs to be fully integrated as part of risk management, and this evolution has reshuffled the cards for corporate affairs practitioners.

In September 2016, GlobeScan was excited to partner with Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) to deliver the fourth Living Progress Exchange (LPX).

This month we put the spotlight on Africa and the challenges facing organizations operating in the region.

Accelerated technological change is unlocking new opportunities for consumers and businesses, and Africa still has abundant resources and...

The Internet of Things’ (IoT) potential to drive transformative change in the environmental, social and economic spheres is a source of hope and excitement. However, while some companies are delivering examples of where this potential is becoming reality, is the progress quick enough and at a large enough scale to help address the rapid onset of global challenges we face?
