The project Unravelling the Business Value Landscape is an in-depth look at the different definitions and perceptions of the term ‘business value’, including those from financial, academic, and sustainability-focused communities. Through a comprehensive literature review, a survey, and several in-depth interviews, the team highlights some of the challenges that stem from the over-usage of a term that has multiple interpretations. In light of this analysis, the team aims to provide some recommendations and key principles that should be taken into account when using the term, and supplement this with case studies in which companies are expressing and measuring business value in ways that adhere to these principles.
