Case studies from the <IR> Business Network’s Integrated Thinking & Strategy Group

The Integrated Thinking and Strategy Group (a special interest group of the <IR> Business Network) brings together some of the world’s most innovative companies so that they can collaborate, learn from each other, challenge each other’s thinking and share leading practices between themselves and those who follow them.
