Stakeholder Engagement: Opportunities, Types and Vehicles Linda Ackerman Anderson Dean Anderson Creating an effective stakeholder engagement strategy is an extremely important aspect of your overall change strategy.

Integral Politics Also published at Integralworld.net See also my follow-up essay – Panarchy: The Integral Social Matrix Twelve years into the new millennium we bear witness to the ever more violent death throes of the current political and economic order. What will rise from the ashes will be the defining question of our time and will determine whether humanity will suffer through another century of war, death, destruction, and tyranny; or if the people will find it in themselves to transcend this emerging “New World Order,” to overcome it and institute something else in it’s place. Something that honors the inherent rights of all men and women to live their lives in peace and freedom, and to reach their fullest potential.
7 Tools to Assess and Accelerate Organizational Culture Change What is Organizational Culture? “Organizational culture is the sum of values and rituals which serve as ‘glue’ to integrate the members of the organization.”- Richard Perrin Organizational culture can be described as the shared norms; unspoken rules, underlying assumptions; behaviours and expectations that govern the way people approach their work and interact with each other. Such norms and expectations shape how the organizational members believe they are expected to behave in order to fit in, get things done, and navigate through organizational politics. Organizational cultures are complex as they made up of multiple layers that have developed over time by influential characters.
Integral Institute The Integral Institute is a think-tank founded in 1998 by American author Ken Wilber. The purpose of the Institute is to gather and attempt to integrate the various viewpoints found in a number of major fields of knowledge. For example, the Integral Institute currently has a number of branches including Integral psychology, Integral business, Integral politics, Integral medicine, Integral education, Integral ecology and sustainability, Integral law and criminal justice, Integral art, and Integral spirituality. This attempt to integrate the knowledge base of a particular field is based on the notion that differing opinions are often true but partial versions of actual reality. Various schools of thought in a particular subject, then, rather than being winner-take-all competitors, are seen as unique but partial contributors to a more realistic or Integral whole.
