Part of the Strategy Forum 2021 Program is an online lunch Workshop with Prof. Jasjit Singh
‘Thinking Strategically about Impact’
23 November from 12:00 – 13:30 CET
In this session, we will examine how to complement your passion for serving society with strategic thinking to maximize the breadth, depth and sustainability of your real impact. What ultimately matters is how much you help towards addressing underserved yet important societal issues, while being sensitive to the opportunity cost of the time and resources invested in doing so. The essence of thinking strategically thus involves asking exactly what societal need you are trying to meet and for whom, and how you can position yourself to make a valuable contribution consistent with your own personal goals and passions.
We will argue that different kinds of organizations (e.g., non-profits, social enterprises or companies) as well as funding approaches (e.g., philanthropy or investing) are complementary means of pursuing societal goals. We as individuals need to identify critical societal needs we care about, and contribute to these in a manner consistent with our unique strengths and the constraints of the context in which we choose to pursue these.
