Fronesys services for our corporate clients
Every organisation embarking on the journey to integrated thinking will be asking the following questions:
- How do we create value now and in the future?
- What is material to our success?
- Is our business model aligned to effectively deliver on our value targets?
- How do we optimise our operating model to support and execute our business model?
- How do we measure, govern and improve our value creation strategy and execution? How do we communicate to external stakeholders our way of creating value?
Our response to these questions is to show how these issues inter-connect with different parts of the organisation.
Once a company can understand its material drivers of value creation (or destruction), it can then assess how its strategy needs to align with those drivers of value, decide how it will operationalise the resulting strategy, and then create internal and external reporting approaches to reflect how the organisation is working.
To help deliver this, Fronesys offers services that are targeted at helping companies at various stages of their integrated thinking journey. These services are summarised in the diagram below.

Fronesys founders played influential roles in the development of the integrated reporting movement, a corporate reporting mechanism that now has around two thousand listed companies as its adopters, and which is now part of the mainstream of corporate reporting. So, perhaps, now is as good a time as any for Jyoti Banerjee to look back and assess the outcomes and impacts, as well as the what-might-have-beens, of this new form of corporate reporting.
Oxford University Press has just released a new chapter from the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Food, Water and Society: Integrating Multi-Capital Thinking in Business Decisions. The new chapter, contributed by Fronesys partner Jyoti Banerjee, explores how we need to change our understanding of value. Here is Jyoti’s account of what you can expect in this new publication.
Jyoti Banerjee, partner at Fronesys, highlights that by adopting the principles of integrated thinking and reporting, universities can move away from a focus on reporting short term financial metrics to a multi-stakeholder approach which offers compelling narratives about their value.
