“The next stage in integrated thinking”: <IR> Integrated Reporting and VDMbee Value Management combined

Introduction

The primary goal of the VDMBee Value Management Platform is to provide decision makers, their team and business consultants a clear and innovative dashboard for decision-making about future direction where Value Delivery is the main driver. Sometime back, a friend of me pointed at the work that happened around the theme of <IR> Integrated Reporting and the work of Mary Adams in this space. Our knowledge exchange strengthened the perception that <IR> and Value Delivery Management have a lot to offer to each other. Recently Mary Adams posted an interesting article about Value Delivery Modelling and Integrated Reporting.
This article is about the software support the VDMbee Value Management Platform can offer to support structured analysis as described in the Value Creation Worksheet tool of Mary Adams.

<IR> Integrated Reporting objectives

Creating value looks at the central relationship between Integrated Reporting and its cyclical power, as visualized in the Value Creation process diagram below, and relationship with integrated thinking. We see reporting and thinking as two sides of the same coin – both necessary to enhance connectivity in the organization and enhanced communication on value creation. In combination, the benefits are rich and compelling:

  • A shared understanding of strategy and how value is created throughout the organization with fewer silos
  • More cohesive management information and informed decision making, enhancing accountability and performance
  • Boards can actively use a multiple capitals approach to make strategic decisions about resource allocation and value creation over time, communicating the trade-offs between the capitals and the outcomes for business and society. This approach gives greater meaning to decisions, building trust inside the business and with stakeholders
  • A greatly enhanced quality of dialogue between organizations and their providers of financial capital, helping to achieve greater accountability, a longer-term focus and more efficient capital flows to drive investment and productivity
  • World-class corporate reporting focused on material disclosures that assist decision-making, applying the principles of the International Framework
