What is Purposeful Endeavor?
An organisation requires a reason to exists, and its purpose gives meaning to the organisation’s day to day activities. Strategic Management and planning focuses the business leader on how to deliver an organisations strategy but fails to explain where strategy is created. In a modern global economy the centre of balance is at the heart of the organisation and must answer not with what must we do, but with why we are here, giving meaning to an organisation’s day to day activities.
