The Enlightened Enterprise

Publisher: SelectBooks

The unenlightened organization invests too much attention to trends in the external environment and what competitors or other organizations are doing. The enlightened organization invests more in developing new and unique capabilities that enable it to actually shape, rather than respond to, forces in the external environment.The Enlightened Enterprise integrates principles from a diverse set of domains, including the physical sciences, behavioral psychology, human consciousness and spirituality, and organization effectiveness to create a conceptual blueprint for the successful enterprise of the future.Why is it that with everything we know about what makes organizations work well, most still grind-away, seemingly in the dark, and fight for survival? The main problem with most organizations today is that they act and behave in unconscious ways.
