Growth is a powerful force. Over the past few centuries, the existing growth model has catalysed enormous progress.
It has been a force for good. But this growth model is no longer fit for our needs – or those of generations to come. In many ways it has become a destructive force, promoting short-term wins over long-term prosperity, desolating natural resources and widening exclusion.
As leaders, each of us has the power to create a different kind of growth – be it for ourselves, our organisations, or the systems in which we operate. And when we combine forces across industries, sectors and borders? That’s when we are at our most powerful. So let’s reinvent growth, harnessing it to solve the biggest human problems. For these problems also represent our biggest commercial opportunities.
