Paljudes organisatsioonides domineerib endiselt arusaamine, et organisatsiooni kitsas ja peamine eesmärk on siiski kasumit teenida (vt siit üks asjakohane lugu). Seda vaatepunkti on siiski palju kritiseeritud. Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele organisatsioonide ja juhtimishuvilistele ning mõistagi keskkonnast huvitatutele.

Kontekstiks:

The orthodox approach to management, which we will call the Financial Bottom Line approach, prioritizes profit above all else, and is increasingly seen as problematic because of the negative social and ecological externalities it creates (e.g. Moosmayer et al., 2019; Waddock, 2016). […] even if the world’s 1200 largest corporations met all their aspirational environmental goals, doing so would address only 25% of their responsibility in meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement (Makower et al., 2020).

Juhtimise kohta õppimisel on oluline roll:

Educators should develop pedagogies that allow management students to shift their perspective and consider an alternative paradigm that values people and planet as much as, or more than, profit.

Alternatiivid:

Nonetheless, two important sources of potential alternatives are Positive Organization Scholarship (POS) and Critical Management Studies (CMS).

Ja samm edasi:

Social and Ecological Thought management seeks to optimize social and ecological well-being, explicitly making financial well-being a subsidiary concern. Social and Ecological Thought management argues that organizations should—indeed must—make enough profit to be financially viable, but they need not maximize profit.

Our results suggest that teaching three approaches to management resulted in significant change among students’ views of effective management, and an overall trend away from the Financial Bottom Line approach and toward the Social and Ecological Thought approach.
