Creating Shared Value

Creating Shared Value

A shift in business thinking is creating new opportunities for competitive advantage, corporate profitability, and social impact, according to FSG co-founders Michael E. Porter and Mark Kramer in The Big Idea: Creating Shared Value, the featured cover story in the January/February 2011 issue of Harvard Business Review (January/February 2011). 

The creating shared value approach will change the face of business. FSG works with global corporations across all sectors to implement shared value strategies. Companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Eli Lilly, Medtronic, Merck, Microsoft, Nestlé, Pfizer, Shell, TNT, and UBS have already started using the this approach to achieve new levels of social impact while improving corporate profitability.
