Businesses seeking success should look to nature for inspiration | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

"Today's rapidly changing business environment calls for businesses that thrive in such environments: businesses more akin to living systems. These firms of the future learn and adapt; they aren't structured and siloed, which stifles learning and agility. They are bottom-up, decentralised, interdependent, multifunctional, self-organising units – unlike the centralised, top-down, hierarchically-managed monoliths of the 20th century. Organisations need to transform into units that are inter-connected, value-led and inspired by nature."

 

Good article at the Guardian's Sustainable Business blog making the case for a change of thinking in business models: away from competitiveness and proft-maximising and focussing on cooperation, networking and resilience.

This does not mean stagnating economic development; it means cutting down on waste and overcoming the social pressure to accumulate material wealth at the expense of others' well-being.
