Creating And Transforming A Meaning Organization
What can truly innovative organizations of the information age learn from the 'fails' experienced by the casualties and causes of the industrial age's deepest recession?
Umair Haque – director of Havas Media Lab, founder of Bubblegeneration and Harvard Business Review writer – challenges organizations to create (or re-create) themselves as “Meaning Organizations” in order to have a significant impact in the world. This will involve shifting their focus from purely profits, to authentic social engagement.
According to Haque;
A better and very different global economy made up of novel, more beneficial industries, more purposive types of organizations, and more passionate work will bring radically more fruitful approaches to commerce, trade, and exchange. We’re in the midst of a bumpy, lengthy transition from a lackluster present, to an uncertain future…What you might call the age of wisdom is being painfully and noisily born.
