Abstract [en]

This chapter shows that the manner an organisation approaches strategic planning matters. A case study reflecting on Joseph's analytic work that was rooted in stewardship, service and divine endowments, and not 'fire and fury games'. It develops theoretical findings drawn from biblical strategy and blended with contemporary strategic human resource management. This virtuousness- common good approach to formulation of strategies through knowledge management is examined, particularly in regard to how managers can find a way for their organizations to best fit into the environment. It advances literature d related to spirituality at work (SAW) and spiritual leadership theory (SLT) to show that we are accompanied to work with our emotions and spirits. It concludes that ethics is not only related to application and discernment of principles of right and wrong that have virtual understanding of social cause and effect but also includes matters related to practical wisdom (phronesis).
