How GE Is Changing Business Through Shared Value

Summary: 

Do More Than Give, the new book from authors Leslie R. Crutchfield, John V. Kania, and Mark R. Kramer, outlines how companies such as GE simultaneously improve communities and make a profit. In other words, how they create "shared value," the concept that Kramer coined along with Michael Porter to describe the evolution of capitalism away from shareholder primacy, where profits enrich the few, to stakeholder capitalism, where companies create value for shareholders by enhancing value for broader society at the same time. This new business focus entails analyzing a company's product and markets, recreating its value chain, and amplifying the productivity of the surrounding communities in which it functions.
