The Virtuosa Organisation of the future

The world is challenged by natural disasters, shortages, protests, deceitful political and business practices.

The authors of The Virtuosa Organisation believe that business is uniquely poised and equipped to face the challenges and change all of this. They comprehensively present practical ways and means of living a new strategic narrative and delivering a dazzling, virtuosa performance grounded on relevant virtues. (The Latin for virtue, virtus, means ‘spiritual strength’). Their vision goes beyond doing well and doing good, or moving from good to great. It is about businesses transforming their culture, developing virtuous cycles, and being the significant and sustainable difference that is needed.

The authors make liberal use of story, images, metaphor and poetry to convey their experience, insights and findings. Virtues drawn from the life and works of Leonardo da Vinci, and which span all cultures, illustrate what is possible.

Here is an opportunity to see afresh, to envisage courageously and to position your organisation differently.

This book is a powerful presentation of some of the issues associated with organisations and society and the failure of conventional methods to tackle them. Dave Snowden, Founder & Chief Scientific Officer, Cognitive Edge Pte Ltd.
