About this book

From flint chip to silicon chip - the major advances in medicine, food production, space travel and communication are achievements of which the human race can be truly proud. Whatever challenges we've faced in the past we have survived and prospered. However, there is problem...The scale of the global issues we are facing today: unsustainable population growth; climate change; energy supplies; water supplies; planet sustainability and biodiversity; extreme poverty; global health; universal education; and, conflict and finance are more daunting than ever.

Nevertheless these issues must be addressed. Is there the required will, commitment and, in fact, capability to tackle these global challenges? We need to begin acting a lot smarter, and faster, if we are going to avert the potential devastating impacts on this planet. We can't wait for the World Bank, National Governments or the UN to do it for us - we all need to follow a co-ordinated 'business management' approach to properly address them. That's why the authors of "Developing a Plan for the Planet" outline an approach to achieving change which can be implemented at every level - government, business, community and as an individual.

Contents

Preface; Overview; Understanding the 10 global challenges and opportunities; Developing a Plan for the Planet; Managing a Plan for the Planet: best practice global management; Driving change and making it happen; Epilogue; Appendices, bibliography and reference notes; Index.

He is been an active member of the advisory committee of the Green Economics Institute, where he has worked on developing practical approaches to green business development. This has included several speaking engagements, workshops and developing the overall approach - as well as piloting and trialing the practicalities of the Plan for the Planet approach which proved very popular. John Humble, M.A (Cantab), is an international management consultant whose books, including 'Management by Objectives', and 'Improving Business Results', have been translated into 17 languages. He also wrote the first UK publication on Social Audit, developed the first CEO attitude survey on Social Responsibility across 11 European countries, and published 'The Responsible Multinational'. His awards include the Ford Foundation Businessman Award; the Burnham Medal of the British Institute of Management; Fellowship of the International Academy of Management and the Social Responsibility Award of Management Centre Europe. His publications on management by objectives bring unique insight to this publication as the definition of the tasks required of the visionary manager are no more applicable than to the issues facing Planet Earth. His focus on clarifying the goals of management objectivity so that the responsibility for achieving the goals was appropriately distributed, and standards of management effectiveness provide an ideal framework within which to build effective global strategies and implementation plans.
