A Roadmap to Impact
Thursday, 12th of April 2018
Plenary session 3: The Future of Science
Currently, most businesses rely on polls and surveys to find out more about their potential customers, and about their social impact. However, the information provided by classic surveys is limited, and precious information is lost during the analysis and presentation of that date. Yet for years, social scientists have been using far more precise tools to understand the public mind, and the hidden drivers behind the collective decisions that societies make. Known as Structural Equation Modelling, this approach reveals the rich web of interactions between the most important factors that drive societies and communities in one direction or another. So far, it has been used mostly in peace-building and social psychology, but it could be an extremely powerful tools for businesses to understand the deeper social context in which they operate, and to adapt their practices accordingly.
