Is Your Business Buddhist or Catholic?

By Russ Levanway, CEO

I recently read a book that addresses the question of how to grow a business while retaining quality and efficiency called Scaling Up Excellence: Getting to More Without Settling for Less by Robert I. Sutton and Huggy Rao. One key question in the book is “do you run your business with a Buddhist or a Catholic philosophy?”

Before we get too far, I’ll assure you that this isn’t a question of religion – it’s one of organizational styles. According to Sutton and Rao, businesses that operate in a “Catholic” manner are highly structured and rigid, with little variation in how processes are conducted; while those on the Buddhist end of the continuum subscribe to an overall value system, but individuals live that system out in a variety of ways within the company.
