Abstract


  • The global business community requires graduates with skills and

    capabilities to cope with real-world interdisciplinary problems. Two key issues

    frequently noted are the silo disciplinary focus and the lack of exposure to responsible

    decision-making (RDM). IDLE (Interactive Dynamic Learning Environment)

    is a web-based computer simulated enterprise delivered through a systems

    approach broadening students’ understanding of the interrelationship between

    corporations, society and the environment. Engagement in IDLE develops

    students’ understanding and application of corporate social responsibility (CSR)

    and sustainability through the identification of business interdependencies. In

    IDLE, integrating systems dynamics with agile dynamic system development

    methods enabled the intricate multifaceted relationships of organisational decision-

    making that includes CSR and sustainability interrelationships to be

    explored. The resulting unique design ensures real organisation decision-making

    dynamics, while not being so complex that the interrelationships were overlooked

    during student engagement.
