Replying to LO13691 --


This is in response to Cliff Hamilton, who is attempting to
connect with people who have seen or experienced more of the
'elephant' at one time.

There is some work being done in the UK that would approach
the spirit, if not the letter of your request. There is a
research group run by Colin Hutchinson (who describes
himself as an environmental change consultant) who are
working on the subject of Sustainable Development and
documenting their findings in a series of books (I believe
their first or second has recently been published).

Their work seems to encompass a holistic approach to
organisations and the people in them and their effect on
their environment (this refers not to the ecologial
environment alone but a far wider context).

Sorry to be a bit vague but it's not my area of expertise.
You can contact Colin as follows:
