The company of the future

Michael Jarvis's picture

What will tomorrow’s corporate giants look like? The rapid rise of world-beating firms from emerging economies ranging from hi-tech to extractives sectors, is already prompting changes in corporate strategy to stay ahead of the game. Now, a UK-based think tank, Tomorrow’s Company, has teamed with leading firms to launch an inquiry addressing core questions on the future role of business in society. Co-chaired by BP and Infosys and with experts such as John Elkington on the inquiry team it should spark some interesting debate. Will business really take on global challenges? Do you think the framing questions are even the right ones? In a welcome step, the inquiry is asking you to share your views here.

Michael - thanks for the tip. Interesting discussion, although the questions seem a little broad. How can you arrive at anything other than platitudes when you're trying to answer such a wide-ranging question? Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I blogged about your post here: http://www.nextbillion.net/blogs/2006/08/28/tomorrows-company Thanks again - keep up the good work!
