Ennovations for Delivering Shared Value

Resolving issues that matter is a major challenge in our ambient society, where we have to navigate in the sea of information to deliver shared value.  Agile, analytic, big, intelligent, smart, sustainable describe the environment for decision enhancement. Business processes have to be engineered accordingly. Delivering shared value calls for ennovations, engaged innovative services, with conversations to collectively identify locally relevant problems, with vital public, administrative and business decisions and with management interventions to deploy localized solutions. Using many examples, the keynote reports on the COLLAGEN (Collective Learning and Agile Governance Environment) environment, which spans a rich arena of design guidelines.
