BAM Think Tank

A year long project to connect the business as mission movement, take stock and strengthen BAM for the future.
Here are the top 3 ‘hottest topics’ in business as mission as identified by 200 Think Tank members:
1. How do we nurture a broader understanding of what mission through business means? How can we understand better the multiple bottom lines of business and how it can bring a holistic impact to communities and nations?
2. How do we successfully integrate the new mission model of BAM with more traditional mission models and strategies? How do we effectively navigate the transition?
3. How can we practically incubate new business as mission models to see growth in the numbers of new BAM enterprises? How do we fund these businesses?

Accelerating a Movement

Looking Back and Looking Forward in Business as Mission

Many of the initiatives we are involved with are about looking forward. We share resources and run events to help people launch out into business as mission. But we also know how important it is to look back. We are standing on the shoulders of those who are gone before. As we learn from what has and hasn’t worked in the past, we can go further, faster. That is what the Global Think Tank on Business as Mission is all about, providing a global forum to go deeper into effective business as mission practice, to strengthen business as mission in the future. We want to share more about some of the strategic initiatives we are involved in: the Think Tank, IBAM Impact and the Business Discipleship Training School. 
In this e.zine you can also read the article ‘Looking Backwards to Move Forward’ by Manoj Raithatha and Bridget Adams from their recent book ‘Building the Kingdom Through Business’. Our Lessons from the Edge also has a historical theme as we learn from the example of Jesse Boot.

Global Think Tank on Business as Mission

Wrestling with the Big Issues

The Hottest Topics in Business as Mission

The Business as Mission Think Tank is a year-long initiative designed to strengthen the business as mission movement to fulfill it’s vital role in God’s mission to the world. More than 200 practitioners and thought leaders are connecting together from around the world to grapple with some of the biggest issues in business as mission, ending with the Global Congress on Business as Mission in April 2013. As we learn and share from experiences of the past and build connections and networks for the future, we will invigorate the movement and multiply the impact of business and business people for God’s Kingdom. 
We surveyed the 200 Think Tank members so far and asked them the question: ‘What is the hottest topic in the BAM movement today?’ Or in other words, what is the one question they would most like to see answered in business as mission. See the left hand column for the top 3 answers and read more for the complete list of top 10 ‘hottest’ issues or themes.
