Integrated Development Network - RDI

Fundação Dom Cabral Business School

Sustainability and Governance within the Network


In the current scenario organizations whose productive chains work within networks have great sustainable growth potential. However, network governance has become a challenge for these organizations.

RDI - Integrated Development Network - aims to develop skills in management and governance within a network made up by "anchor" organizations together with other companies in the context of their productive chains.

Thus, as it builds the management skills of these companies and their productive chains, RDI intends to prepare them to perform individually as well as a group within the context of the intense competition that characterizes increasingly globalized markets while also favoring the setting up of stronger alliances between the "anchors" and their productive chains.

RDI intends to generate reciprocal value by establishing a strategic alliance and cooperation process among the partner companies so as to reach the objectives agreed upon among the members of the partnership.

Target Audience

Organizations that belong to a productive chain, that is, an "anchor" company and the other participating partner companies, companies that belong to clusters, and cooperative and/or association networks, among others.

The Fundamentals 


By themselves, companies have elements that characterize and differentiate them, but they do not usually have all the resources they need to maximize value generation. Thus, they seek potential complementarities that are frequently related to innovation and cost reductions, which are valuable capabilities to the partnership.

Value Partnership and Partnership Value

The competitiveness of companies that work in productive chains and in networks is a consequence of the sustainable value that they generate and capture from the market.

In these relationships there are opportunities to generate a superior value that stems from cooperation. Such potential value needs to be defined, developed and measured.

Sustainable businesses

Networks must understand their role towards sustainable development by committing themselves to the economic, social and environmental results of their surroundings.
