Dr. Tima Bansal
Ivey Business School, Professor, General Management, Sustainability & Strategy

In this session, Dr. Tima Bansal outlines some of the key assumptions made in conventional business strategy, which is grounded in neoclassical economics. However, this worldview is being challenged across a number of fronts, including eroding firm profits. Business strategy is being disrupted by the principles that ground sustainable development. Dr. Bansal will describe the principles of sustainable development and their implications to business strategy, grounding the ideas in some leading business practices.
