Shift Impact Africa focuses on assisting organisations with the development of their sustainability and Shared Value strategies.

These strategies are aligned to the principles and framework of Creating Shared Value. Strategy development is driven by profit with purpose, focuses on creating economic value and value for society, and addresses sustainability as well as societal and environment issues profitably.

01. STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT

We partner with clients to create social impact strategies centered on sustainability: delivering economic value, while also addressing societal and environmental needs or challenges aligned to the client’s business purpose. We follow a collaborative strategy development process, as we insist on the buy-in of stakeholder to drive success.

02. CREATING SHARED VALUE INITIATIVES & IMPLEMENTATION

Together with the client, we identify aligned business opportunities, develop Shared Value initiatives benefitting the business and the societies in which it operates. Guided by the Purpose Playbook, we work alongside the client in creating and implementing both strategy and initiatives, focused on sustainability and measurable success.

03. ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE

We work with organisations to do a check-in on culture and redirect the use of resources and business processes to ensure an organisation-wide adoption of a Shared Value strategy. Working with individuals, teams and departments, we assist with the cultivation of a purpose-driven environments that extends from the C-Suite to every department.

04. MEASUREMENT

Together, we identify a suitable measurement process and system, based on the selected framework: Terms of Reference, Impact Management Project, Purpose Playbook or client-specific indicators that include ongoing analysis of results, surveys and data collection to ensure continuous outcomes monitoring.

05. EXECUTIVE TRAINING

We provide organisational and executive one-on-one training on Shared Value, the framework and the Purpose Playbook, as well as strategy implementation. The training builds a solid understanding of Shared Value both internally and externally, inclusive of the organisation’s supply chain and value chain.

06. DIALOGUES & PLATFORMS

Shift is the owner, organiser and content curator of the annual Africa Shared Value Leadership Summit. This platform galvanises like-minded business leaders from across the continent to share CSV success stories and challenges.
