Hooked on Speed: How the Addiction to Change is Duping Corporations and Eroding Sustainability

Join Dr. Tima Bansal, Canada Chair of Business Sustainability at Ivey School of Business, and the Gustavson School of Business for a fascinating look at the effect of fast changes on business.

Continuous and accelerating changes to technologies, products, and markets not only undermine profits, but are at the heart of significant social and environmental costs.

Using the Coca-Cola Company as an example, Dr. Bansal will show that corporations must discriminate between the activities in which they need to respond quickly and those that require long-term investments for stability and sustainability.

Free, and the public is most welcome. Details of this February 19, 2015 event are here.
