… there is a strong community feeling and the passions of the givers are genuine. “We can achieve more by giving together than we can by giving alone“, is tangible.

Respecting the slower nature of charities is part of the process of understanding them, says consultant Tom Levitt. His article, in Guardian Professional, argues that the slower, evolutionary momentum of the voluntary sector distinguishes it from the fast-paced, “quick buck” attitude of the private sector.

In this month’s issue of PM World Today, A.J.Gilbert Silvius and Ron Schipper offer a perspective on project management that, whilst not entirely new, is still paradoxically something of a rarity: the role of projects and project managers in business sustainability. I say, paradoxically because given the function of projects to deliver business change, you’d have thought they would be the standard bearers of sustainable practice. Let’s hope that Gilbert and Ron’s work will strike a chord and provide a catalyst to enable projects to assume that role. Gilbert Silvius and Ron Schipper are authors of the forthcoming Gower book, Sustainability in Project Management.

Tom Levitt’s piece ‘Shall We Dance’ on the Charities Direct website is an excellent guide for both partners in these arrangements (the charities and the businesses) and provides you with the basis to reflect on whether to get together, why and with whom. Read it and take the opportunity to join the dance – it may well be that this kind of partnership is just what your organization needs in these changing times. Tom Levitt is author of the forthcoming Gower book - Partners for Good: Business, Government and the Third Sector.

I always think that a good book is one that provides you with the incentive and the opportunity to act. Ian Chambers and John Humble’s Developing a Plan for the Planet does just that, not least because the accompanying website provides you with instructions and the means to create your own business plan for the planet which you can upload and share with others.

The reason why John Smythe is one of the most successful commentators on the whole subject of employee engagement is surely down to his ability to express ideas in ways which seem intuitive and yet, often, profound. In this article he explains his four leadership approaches to engaging employees in strategy and change. John Smythe is a co-founder of Engage for Change and author of The CEO – Chief Engagement Officer: Turning Hierarchy Upside Down to Drive Performance.

In free, competitive markets no one should be able to influence prices by their will. But of course many forms of fixing prices exists.
In Chapter 4 – The Market Guidance of the Economy Professor Ozer Ertuna explains how markets guide the economy in theory and practice by presenting the assumptions and the models of the theory.
Professor Ertuna is the author of Wealth, Welfare and the Global Free Market

The IVCA Clarion Awards are the world’s only awards promoting CSR, sustainable development, social inclusion and ethical debate. And I am delighted that Mark Wright’s Gower Handbook of Internal Communication has been given an award, under the printed material category, for its contribution to public sector communication. It’s very gratifying to see the value of this book recognised, not least because IVCA still champion books as a form of communication, alongside the more glamorous forms of media that they recognise; everything from videos and advertising to live events and viral marketing.
