th0004Organizations are human systems and their system structure includes the worldview, beliefs, and mental models of their leaders and members. Changing organizational 

behavior requires changing the belief system of its personnel. This process of changing beliefs, learning, requires clear, open communications throughout the organisation.

Organizational performance ultimately rests on human behavior and improving performance requires changing behavior. Therefore corporate restructuring should have as a fundamental goal the facilitation of clear, open communication that can enable organizational ongoing learning and clarify accountability for results. 

Continuous organizational learning is necessary to stay up to date. Organizations that cannot or will not learn will become obsolete. Leaders must periodically examine the structure of their organization to assure that it continues to provide an environment for organizational learning. The points of leverage in organizations are the beliefs and worldview of their decision makers. The sense of purpose, vision and commitment of an organization's leadership play a critical role in the results it can accomplish.

that Pytheas through its Soil Water + Life Solutions is probably the only entity world wide that can provide a-no-chimney-no-landfill-solution for the treatment of municipal solid and liquid waste?

that Pytheas the ancient Greek explorer, mathematician, astronomer and navigator must have travelled to the American continent at the time of Alexander the Great?

that Pytheas has presence in 41 countries?

that recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4000 kilowatt hours of electricity; this is enough energy to power the average North American home for 5 months?

that every year, Americans buy more than 100 million cell phones, yet fewer than 20% of old cell phones are recycled and that recycling just a million cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions equal to removing 1,368 cars off the road for a full year?

that in a lifetime the average European or North American will discard more than 600 times his or her adult weight in garbage and about a ton of trash per person per year?

that of all the restaurants that are opened, 90% of them fail in the first year and of the remaining ones that survive, 90% of those fail in the second year?

that Confucius about 2,500 years ago argued that the government should not compete for profit with the people, as it would only result to the exploitation of the population?

that 1 recycled tin would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours; 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes; 1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours?

that the Boeotian Hesiod about 3000 years ago theorized on the entrepreneurship typical of the market (an early laissez-faire), identifying the effects of government debasement of the coinage, which causes a decrease in its purchasing power (think Adam Smith, Keynes and post Keynes), arguing about the importance of competition and the importance of justice and the law in order to foster order and harmony in society?
