Develop Circular Business Models

A program created by Justine Laurent, Brieuc Saffré & Fabrice Sorin
Managing Director, Co-Fonder of Circulab and Circulab Academy Manager 

Operating as a consultant for several years, you now aim to guide organizations through their transition to a circular, regenerative, and resilient economy. However, when engaging with innovation or R&D leaders, you often find their thinking somewhat superficial. Many solutions seem promising at first glance but reveal numerous negative impacts when scrutinized through a system-thinking lens.

You want to break free from the cycle of false solutions, and that moment has finally arrived. You have secured the mission of your dreams, but a problem arises. The mission is in a month, and you lack the tools to be immediately effective.

The "Developing Circular Business Models" training is the key that will empower you to confidently guide your client and implement relevant recommendations to truly transform their organization. All this is made possible through a tool used by numerous SMEs and large corporations (Orange, Lancôme) that have also chosen systemic change as the centerpiece of their business strategy.

About the program

In this 15-hour online training, you will learn to leverage our tool, the Circular Canvas, to craft profitable, circular, and resilient business models. Most importantly, you'll acquire a precise and recognized methodology, enabling you to rationally articulate to your client (or their boss) why there's no time to wait and, more importantly, why they should take action with you.
