Five Principles

  1. People make decisions based on a complex interplay of cognitive preferences and emotional benefits.
  2. Every enterprise is associated with both equities and disequities in the minds of its customers, employees, investors, the public and other stakeholders groups.
  3. Stakeholders decisions are made in the context of a specific situation and occasion which is part of the broader context in which you operate.
