Ecosystems Overview

Resource constraints—both social and natural—affect most, if not all, functional areas of the modern corporation, but the dilemmas posed by these constraints have yet to be solved. The Center is deeply engaged with the ways in which businesses are dependent on their surrounding ecosystems, as well as the risks and opportunities for innovation that this relationship presents.
