Today the market is changing dramatically with so many uncertainties and technological changes that the bigger companies had to choose right strategies to last and also adjust to the changing environment. In this manner, the key arrangement of mission, vision, and estimations of corporate culture, where every single internal stakeholder is guided by and live by, is crucial to the long-term sustainability of a company. Internal stakeholders built to last organizations are hence instilled into the central belief system of the association, which will, thusly, encourage every individual's self-administrative qualities that will adjust to that of the
The scientists tried to create methods to fight against these problems and how they affect the world society. For this, we started talking about sustainable development, by Gro Harlem Brundtland, which said that, “Meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” This idea gave rise to the Brundtland Report, which was mainly focused on the economy, ecology and social relations in the world society. The rules of this report contribute to the control of all aspects of modern society and have sustainability as the main idea, with economic and social principles to modernize these ideas. Now, I want to explain these concepts in the economic, ecologic and social point view and give my ideas about how this contributes to the health of the
Stahl and Grigsby (1992) noted, strategic management becomes very necessary as it helps an organisation’s management to identify and be sensitive to environmental forces and develop the organisation’s resources meant to address organisational problems, demands and challenges whilst taking into account the threats and opportunities existing in the market place or industry. Therefore, Stahl and Grigsby (ibid.) imply that managers need to engage in the ongoing process of evaluating their organisation’s internal and external environments and intervene, if necessary, by initiating strategic change that may lead to organisational change and development. 2.4.0 THE ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE PROCESSES From the discussion above, strategic analysis is important in the process of initiating organisational change and development. Greenberg and Baron (1997) contend that this is so because the issues highlighted are actually the forces that lead to a change in organisational strategy, structure and design, technology and operations, and change in people or employees and employers.
This is where technology can play a vital role in helping spread that content and promoting the message by attracting new supporters and keeping our current donors/ volunteer engaged. I have seen that WFP’s shift to using digital marketing is helping the organisation reach the general public much more efficiently, as a few years ago it was highly challenging and costly for a global organisation to reach people in all corners of the world. However, technology has transformed all of that by empowering the nonprofit sector and helping drive social progress. While this doesn’t mean that traditional marketing methods have lost their effectiveness, it is clear that WFP should find new ways to combine traditional and new, digital methods together for the benefit of the
Billings (2011), mass media can be described as being “…both an umbrella and a plural term. It brings together a range of communicative technologies, institutions, audiences, practices and texts while reaffirming that the constituents of this implied singular entity are, instead, multiple, different and irreducible.” Media has a significant role to play in modern society. It can cause serious changes and improve social situation as it affects our civil, cultural, political, economic and aesthetic outlook. An example is Mediacorp, which is the biggest broadcaster in Singapore. As the national broadcaster, Mediacorp is regularly seeking new ways to provide valued content for their viewers.
Development in economic booms rapidly compared to past decade was a result due to a generation that pushed and adapted to the growth of economic as a means to improving technology, facilities, and humanity’s condition. Factories, automobiles, buildings and so on had created by generation in order to raise up the development of economic. This had brought many negative effects such as pollution of air, water, soil, and destroy the forest as well as natural sources and creation of toxic wastes. Therefore, environmental sustainability is required to protect and save our earth.Local authorities, government agencies, and engineers play the main roles to work together to address the challenges of environmental sustainability.

INTRODUCTION The provision of energy services is important for socio economic development as it is required in meeting the human basic needs as food, shelter, health, education and for economic activities such as transport, manufacturing and mining (Ministry of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources-Energy Affairs Division, 2009). Similarly, Bakaya-Kyahura in 2004 stated that energy is an essential commodity for human development (http://www.active.cput.ac.za ), and it is the driving force behind all industrial operations because as industrialization grows, energy consumption levels grows on the same direction placing tremendous pressure on the natural resources and environment (Matshameko, 2001). Therefore, to drive sustainable development energy
