Summary

A social enterprise is a business that trades for a social and/or environmental purpose.

Social enterprises generally have a remit to do good in some way by solving a social or environmental problem. These organisations typically know who they are trying to help and why. One difference between social enterprises and charities is that these are organisations that aim to meet their needs for income through vending products and services. They will often not look for grants and donations to keep going. That said, they may use grants to get underway at the outset, or may look for alternative sources of financing such as debt finance (loans), equity finance or community finance. The founder of social enterprises generally launches them with a view to making a difference in the area targeted.

    When turbulence is the new normal, an organization's survival depends on vigilant leadership that can anticipate threats, spot opportunities, and act quickly when the time is right. In See Sooner, Act Faster, strategy experts George Day and Paul Schoemaker offer tools for thriving when digital advances intensify turbulence.Vigilant firms have greater foresight than their rivals, while vulnerable firms often miss early signals of external threats and organizational challenges. Charles Schwab, for example, was early to see and act on the promise of "robo-advisors"; Honeywell, on the other hand, stumbled when Nest Labs came out first with a "smart" thermostat. Day and Schoemaker show leaders how to assess their vigilance capabilities and cultivate insight and foresight throughout their organizations. They draw on a range of cases, including Adobe and Intuit's move to the cloud, Shell's investment in clean energy, and MasterCard's early recognition of digital challenges.Day and Schoemaker describe how to allocate the scarce resource of attention, how to detect weak signals and separate them from background noise, and how to respond strategically before competitors do. The challenge is not just to act faster but to act wisely, and the authors suggest ways to create dynamic portfolios of options.
