In today's world, we are aware that everything is connected and so we can not think things separately anymore.

With this first module, you will explore the mindset of systemic thinking and therefore be able to take action in the most relevant way.

  • Learn how to map a system before starting any project

  • Raise your awareness of systems

  • Identify the main levers to redesign a system

Analyse a value chain with circularity

As understood in the previous module, in our interconnected systems, if one chain collapses, all the others face risks.

With this second module, you will learn how to embrace a clear view on how value is distributed amongst a market, evaluate ecosystems dependencies and design resilient value chains.

  • Identify business & regenerative opportunities

  • Check the resilience of your value chain

  • Anticipate systemic risks and threats

Tools circular economy

Facilitate cooperation between stakeholders

Designing new loops of value is only possible when involving all partners, all stakeholders on the long-term.

With this new module, discover and comprehend the Partner Map so as to identify the partners to bring together and establish the best hypothesis for shared value.

  • Identify the key stakeholders

  • Enable cooperation between all actors

  • Facilitate shared value creation

Analyze and design regenerative business models

The mission drives the organization in its strategy whereas, the business model frames how it creates value and manages resources.

With this module you will first be able to define the fundamental needs of the users and ecosystems, leading to better innovation.

Then you will learn to master the Circular Canvas and you will be able to take the right choices and design business models with positive impacts.

I recommend this module which is absolutely necessary to think with a large point of view and to look further. It's a great tool which pushes you to give up the court-term solution: the solution of today could be the problem of tomorrow...
