The Centre for Future Enterprise seeks to envision and test future enterprises for tomorrow’s real world
CFE’s research is clustered in four themes, each exploring key attributes and the inter-relationships between them, reflecting key areas organisations need to focus on to embrace the future. Directed by a Theme Leader, three of the themes are institutionalised as their own research centres. Entrepreneurial Enterprise is led by the Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship, and focuses on investigating start-ups, founders and entrepreneurship to identify new capabilities, capitalise on an opportunity-rich environment, and revise mindsets. Digital Enterprise is led by the Centre for the Digital Economy, and focuses on digital maturity and literacy for future enterprises. Social-purpose Enterprise is led by the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and focuses on nonprofit organisations, philanthropic foundations and social enterprises boosting their capabilities to deliver to their promise in a connected, global world. Robust Enterprise focuses on the emergence of entire new sub-management disciplines such as innovation management or trust management.
While a new centre, the Centre for Future Enterprise leverages 46 years of collective experience between these centres.
