The theme for this year’s APEX Business-IT Global Case Challenge is Conscious Capitalism: Doing Good While Doing Business.
According to Forbes, conscious capitalism refers to businesses that serve the interests of all their major stakeholders – i.e. their customers, employees, investors, communities, suppliers as well as the environment. Today, we can find an increasing number of businesses that are both incorporating social good within their business model and evaluating their performances in a broader perspective to create greater business values. These companies seek to benefit not only their own business profits, but also the livelihoods of people while minimizing environmental impacts.
With many stakeholders involved, how can conscious businesses create an impact for their ecosystem while being profitable at the same time? What role does IT play in conscious capitalism?
NOTE: The APEX Business-IT 2016 case will be related to the theme. As in prior years, the case itself will not be released until the beginning of the deliberation period.
