Riassunto: "Think Differently, Do Differently!. Miguel has written a compelling book to help us think differently and to understand the possibilities for a better world for everyone. When you think differently you do differently. I was inspired and made more knowledgeable about the possibilities which I had never deeply thought about.. The Sustainable Organization is a very interesting book which shows the way for organizations to create a win, win, win for all stakeholders in our fragile world. Become Sustainable or eventually die.Greed is a poison.".   Lee Cockerell, Former Executive Vice-President at Disney, Author,  USA   We aspire to instil discussion about the characteristics of sustainable organisations as the cornerstone of the definition of new criteria to assess how useful an organisation truly is. The main premise for this is that an organisation can only be sustainable when its full impact - internal and external - is positive in the short, medium and long-term and when its activity contributes to human survival and/or development. We propose a new model for sustainable organisations founded on transparency, merit and purpose as well as a simple index - a new algorithm - that will enable any citizen in the world to understand and compare the real value and impact of any organisation. Our hope is that this awareness will lead to a shift in global dynamics, from a perilous route - conflict-oriented - onto a prosperous trajectory that is truly sustainable and unequivocally focused on human needs.  Looking at the top 100 organisations in the world, have you ever wondered which ones would we really miss if they were to disappear? Or, which ones deliver something that we truly need in order to improve our health and happiness? Or even, which of these organisations are taking advantage of resources while jeopardising the quality of life of the next generations? Current performance metrics strongly overlook these facts . In fact, despite the dramatic technological progress that infused radical changes in the society over the past century, profits and shareholder value remain the cardinal assessment tools.  We believe this has led us to support, recognise and reward predatory organisations in detriment to sustainable organisations. Ultimately, we end up seeing villains for heroes and blindly incentivising those who live from this, albeit not contributing to the community. Yet, a society that deters useful professions in favour of futile jobs, a society that values futile organisations, penalising the ones that bring actual value, is undeniably unsustainable.

Dall'autore: This book is proof of how simple ideas can develop into a new paradigm with the potential to have a strong impact worldwide. Hopefully, Ideas that can change the world. It is also a demonstration of how trust, passion, commitment, transparency, flexibility and cooperation can reach high standards.   Throughout the whole process of writing this book, we constantly had in mind that our aim is to stir thoughts, challenge the status quo and bring people together to discuss these ideas, create a debate on this paradigm and ultimately, to instil sustainability in the corporate world, but most of all, in everyone's lives.    It is amazing to see how the world works today. The way people get involved and spontaneously participate in projects they believe in. Probably, there are many more "missionaries" (you can understand this observation after you have read the book...) than most of us would imagine.

Therefore, I must say that we are very happy. Whatever the result of the book, this journey has already been fantastic. We  have learned a lot and I have deeply enjoyed all the moments. We sincerely hope that you will like it, learn and get inspired. If so, reach out. There is a lot we can do together.
