She took a specific interest to research about international best business practices that enable corporations to operate sustainably, indicating a manner that does not compromise the ability of the future generation to exist and meet their needs. Her interest was encouraged by various corporate failures, issues of global warming and financial crises. During her doctoral studies Dr. Ramaboea finds that these above-mentioned unfortunate events led to the formation of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and the development of integrated reporting practices. The IIRC practices are broadly known to have the ability to enable an integrated business thinking that considers all factors that influence a corporation’s ability to create sustainable value. This insight led Dr. Ramaboea to extensively pursue academic research on these practices. Her research included principles of sound business sustainability through PhD in Accounting Sciences with the University of South Africa (Unisa). Her study developed an integrated conceptual model titled “Integrated Model for Internal Change and Value Creation for the Defence Evaluation and Research Institutions (DERIs)”. The model was based on the IIRC integrated reporting practices.

The purpose of her book is to advocate, explain and demonstrate the strategic use of the IIRC’s practices as agents of internal change and sustainable value creator within business environments.
