  • The problem is that we often separate the two responsibilities Drucker is talking about. It seems hard to find a way to find the right balance between the two, and a business model which includes both of them without ignoring one of them.
  • The individual is part of an organisation, which is part of the community. An activity should benefit on all three levels to be viable.

    2. 2. What is CSR really about?<br /> “Leaders in every single institution and in every single sector ... have two responsibilities. They are responsible and accountable for the performance of their institutions, and that requires them and their institutions to be concentrated, focused, limited. They are responsible also, however, for the community as a whole.“<br /> Peter Drucker<br />Social Entrepreneurs Melbourne 2011<br />

YouTube clip from IBM CSC<br /><br />Social Entrepreneurs Melbourne 2011<br />“IBM Corporate Service Corps was launched in 2008 to help provide IBMers with high quality leadership development while delivering high quality problem solving for communities and organizations in emerging markets. The program empowers IBM employees as global citizens by sending groups of 10 – 15 individuals from different countries with a range of skills to an emerging market for four week community-based assignments. During the assignment, participants perform community-driven economic development projects working at the intersection of business, technology, and society.”<br />

    16. 16. What do we do? <br />We help organisations to develop innovative, creative staff by placing their employees outside the organisation to do things for the greater social good.<br />We put together cross-disciplinary task forces of volunteers who solve social / environmental problems with innovative thinking.<br />Social Entrepreneurs Melbourne 2011<br />
    17. 17. What do we do differently from other corporate volunteering organisations?<br />Our approach is cross-disciplinary – the diversity of participants lead to a broader approach to the problem solving.<br />We use the principles of social entrepreneurship, i.e. innovative solutions to solving social problems. The volunteer work involved is more entrepreneurial than organisational.<br />It is not the organisation, which seeks the volunteers, that decides what the volunteer does, but the organisation together with the volunteers. Stakeholders co-create their future.<br />Our volunteers gain skills in creative and complex problem solving, entrepreneurial thinking and how to take a meta-perspectives on issues. That is, the educational aspect of the voluntary work is much stronger. You give more and you get more than in normal corporate volunteering.<br />Social Entrepreneurs Melbourne 2011<br />
