The Living Company

Habits for Survival in a Turbulent Business Environment

"In the recent boom of books about management in changing turbulent times, Arie de Geus's stands in a class by itself.  Unlike other writers, de Geus has spent an entire life doing that kind of management for the world's largest companies. Conceptually coherent and eminently practical, The Living Company is the genuine expression of a remarkable man".  - Francisco Varella, Director of Research, National Centre for Scientific Research, Paris

"Arie de Geus gives leaders of the future an indispensible guidebook in which commitment to values, people, learning and innovation define the 'living company'. It's in my book bag." -Frances Hesselbein, President and CEO, The Drucker Foundation.

"This profound and uplifting book is for the leader in all of us.  Arie de Geus challenges most of the conventional wisdom in management thinking today. Yet the book rings true, revealing a way of being that is deeply important for all of us to grasp." - Dr James F Moore, Chairman of Geopartners Research Inc.
