This book is for those who want their company to prevail in the coming post-petroleum era. Using charts, diagrams, tables, and checklists, the book's principal aim is to make understandable to senior and middle managers issues surrounding the search for sustainable development - and the central role business organizations of every kind can play in the search for new and appropriate solutions.
Vitality and Renewal is appropriate for any manager eager to provide 21st century leadership within his or her sphere of influence. It is also appropriate for those working as agents of change in consulting and training as well as environmental organizations which face their own challenges as awareness of the predicament grows.
