The principles

Blueprint’s Five Principles offer a picture of what a purpose-led organisation might look like. 

A business is essentially a set of relationships and we often therefore refer to the Principles as a relationship map. Each section sets out where an organisation seeks to get to rather than where it is. The points are not intended to be exhaustive but are designed to help businesses challenge themselves to be ‘better’.
