It relies on three basic elements: (1) a societal value-added "frame of mind" (your perspective and commitment about your organization, people, and our shared world), (2) shared determination and agreement on where to head and why (everyone who can or might be affected by the shared objectives must agree on purposes and results criteria), and (3) pragmatic and basic tools. The article presents the basic concepts for thinking and planning Mega to define and deliver value to internal and external partners, defining and delivering individual and organizational success.
