The Nature of Business: Redesigning for Resilience

by Giles Hutchins
£14.95   paperback  Green Books (2012)

The Nature of Business: Redesigning for Resilience by Giles Hutchins This book sets out a new business paradigm.
 
Author Giles Hutchins presents the challenges to the prevailing ‘business as usual’ model, explains the pressing need for transformational change, and reveals the concepts and mindsets necessary to inspire the businesses of tomorrow.
 
Going beyond current approaches to responsible and green business, Hutchins focuses on the emergence of new ways of operating and creating value in an increasingly volatile and interconnected world. He makes the compelling case that the ‘Firm of the Future’ should seek to mimic behaviours and organisations found in nature, which offer fitting models for businesses capable of flourishing in chaotic and uncertain times. A firm of the future, he argues, builds resilience, optimises, adapts, integrates systems, navigates by values and supports life-building activities. It is a business inspired by nature.
 
Showcasing the pioneers of the new paradigm through examples and case studies, the book presents the tools and techniques required to effect the transformation to a business fit for purpose; fit for the future.
