In April the Adelaide Group kicked off their interest in Humanistic Management with a workshop exploring Organisations as Social Systems. Four guest speakers talked about human-centric management from 1) the relational view of the firm (Dr Lisa Daniel,  2) a view of the institutionalised legacies that challenge organisational innovations (Prof Patrick Dawson), 3) sustainable people management (Dr Sam Wells), and 4) complex social systems (Prof Ockie Bosch).
The general consensus was that a humanistic management perspective reflects a relational perspective of the firm where people and their interactions are the primary concern of organisations and business (human centric, i.e. people based view - PBV). This contrasts to the entrenched resource based view (RBV) of the firm which places firm resources (and the concomitant demands and challenges associated with accessing and managing them) as the primary concern.
