The World's Greatest Business Case for Compassion

The World's Greatest Business Case for Compassion

Dec 7, 2011-- It's called one of the greatest stories in medicine, but it's more than that. Its approach has impressed the world's top design-thinkers, and yet, it's more than a paragon of innovation. For the last 17 years every MBA student at Harvard has studied a business case on it, but it's more, even, than a model social enterprise. This is the story of Dr. V -- a retired surgeon with crippled fingers who dreamed of ending curable blindness, and the 11-bed eye clinic he founded, called Aravind. In 35 years this world class organization has seen over 32 million patients. Treating the majority for free it's still remained stunningly profitable. "Infinite Vision" is a new book that tells an amazing story about the human spirit, and what becomes possible when we train our minds, tune our hearts, and integrate sound business principles with a mindset rooted in compassion. An important and inspiring read. (6105 reads)
