Holonomics: Business where People and Planet Matter

Businesses around the world are facing rapidly changing economic and social situations. Business leaders and managers must be ready to respond and adapt in new, innovative ways. The authors of this groundbreaking book argue that business people must adopt what they call a holonomic way of thinking, as well as a dynamic and authentic understanding of the relationships within a business system and an appreciation of the whole. Complexity and chaos should not be feared; they are the foundation of successful business structures and economics. Holonomics presents a new worldview in which economics and ecology harmonize. Using real-world case studies and practical exercises, the authors guide the reader to a new, holistic approach to business and toward a more sustainable future in which both people and planet matter.

This remarkable book distills the essence of the ideas and values taught at Schumacher College, and shows how these teachings can be applied, with many case studies of enlightened business. A powerful antidote to today’s dominant culture.’ — Fritjof Capra. ‘What a gift to have these monumental, mind-changing ideas woven together skilfully in one book.’ — Margaret J Wheatley.
