In the context of the Anthropocene, organizations today struggle in finding a balance between maximizing profits and generating value for their stakeholders, the environment and the society at large. Josep M. Coll’s new book Buddhist and Taoist Systems Thinking: the natural path to sustainable transformation (Routledge) explores a radical new conception of business and management. It is grounded on the reconnection of humans with nature as the new competitive advantage for living organizations and entrepreneurs that aspire to reinvent, create and mindfully manage and evaluate sustainable organizations that drive systemic transformations.
In this webinar we will present the main ideas behind the book and we will explore the intersections between Blue Marble Evaluation and Buddhist and Taoist Systems Thinking as enablers of systems transformation.
Transformation: what it is, why it matters, how to achieve it, and meaningfully evaluate it. That's the territory of this book. Systems understandings can propel transformation, but to do so must cut through the cacophonous demands for more rigorous methods to pursue the challenge of engaging in more rigorous thinking. Drawing on ancient and enduring wisdom, this book illuminates the pathway to sustainability where what is at stake is nothing less than the future of humanity on Earth.
