Though the right shared value approach for each business is unique and depends on its strategy, context, and competitive position, we’ve identified 10 “building blocks” that provide a framework for successfully creating shared value. Case studies from HP, Cisco, GE and others illustrate the application of these ideas across companies and sectors. This report was sponsored by HP.
