2024-08-29: Making Sustainable Development Sustainable through Holistic Quality Leadership

Sustainable development has been defined as a balance between various aspects, as can be seen in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) or in systems like ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) or in the well-known triple P Model (People, Planet, Profit) introduced by John Elkington in 1994.

There is a lot of attention for these systems and sustainability has become a buzz word. But when you look at the state of the planet, as described in the planetary boundaries model, it is clear that we are getting worse.

In this webinar we will look at the underlying reasons for the lack of sustainability results. We will show that a new approach, including a new definition, is needed and how important quality knowledge coupled with holistic leadership are, to achieve a change in thinking and to obtain a breakthrough in results.

“A different book though, touching on various aspects of quality through storytelling and anecdotes. A book that looks beyond generally accepted rules and truths, offering a thought-provoking view on management. Readers may agree, disagree, get mad or be amused, but hopefully not indifferent. After all, Quality is a feeling.”
