In terms of conceptualising ‘organisational sustainability’, we draw upon Colbert and Kurucz (2007) colloquial
definition
of sustainability as being to “keep the business going”. Wales (2013) states another frequently used term in this
context
refers to the “future proofing” of organizations.

However, please be aware that there are 4 elements to be covered in this assignment – the leadership
