Recommendation of the month
A healthy economy should be designed to thrive, not grow. Kate Raworth.
Ever since I read her book, Doughnut Economics, Kate Raworth and her model for creating a thriving economy has been a constant in all my organizational evolution sessions. If you haven’t read her book yet, or if you like audiovisuals more than written, don’t miss her spectacular Ted talk from 2018. In it, and starting from an evolutionary perspective, Raworth explains why the economy must be understood as a planetary language and the key role that the social foundations and respect for the environment must represent in the new way of understanding the profit and loss accounts of organizations.
Short-term actions typical of the 20th century do not bring a prosperous perspective to organizations in the 21st century. What here and now may represent a quick profit is probably undermining the levers that could bring sustainable profit. An approach linked to the famous Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
