Shared Value

Shared value is a management strategy focused on companies creating measurable business value by identifying and addressing social problems that intersect with their business. The shared value framework creates new opportunities for companies, civil society organizations, and governments to leverage the power of market-based competition in addressing social problems. The concept was defined in the Harvard Business Review article “Creating Shared Value” by Professor Michael E. Porter and Mark R. Kramer, co-founders of FSG.

Michael E. Porter speaks with Jin-Yong Cai of International Finance Corporation; Tony O. Elumelu of Heirs Holdings; and Arif Naqvi, of The Abraaj Group
