It's about collaboration and enabling, not purely control and process. It's about encouraging bold thinking and practice that could be different from traditional and expected patterns. It's concerned with fostering a climate through which organisations become places where people grow for the enterprise's future and the benefit of wider markets, clients, communities and society.
