Theory U calls upon the business world with almost evangelical fervour to save the world from poverty, illiteracy, decaying social sructures, environmental catastophe and ill-health - via a sometimes mystical process. The theory invokes the forces of mindful creation to overcome the forces of destruction embedded in current systems.
But..................in times of austerity, when personal and organisational survival and self-interest are under pressure, perhaps even become all-consuming, do morals take a back seat? Is Theory U going to be adopted by enough businesses to make a real and lasting difference?
What do you think?
