Management 3.0 Module: Meaning and Purpose

How to find purpose in your organization

“Every business should start with one question–Why? Why do people decide to work together? An effective way to get this question answered is by creating wan exposition of your work. Find stories that explain what you’re doing and why, and visualize these stories with pictures, videos, and artifacts.”

That’s how we kick off the this chapter of Jurgen Appelo’s Managing for Happiness. In a nutshell, this chapter is about how purpose matters to all businesses. And that purpose must go farther than simply growth, expansion or bank statements. We want everyone who is involved in a business to find it valuable.
