The Anna Karenina phenomenon builds on the first line of Tolstoy’s novel, which states:
“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
When it comes to how an organization meets, we find the opposite to be more true. Unhappy organization are all alike; every happy organization meets in its own way.
The organizations that provide the case study examples for organizational excellence, cultural cohesion, and that achieve the enviable combination of economic performance and a healthy workplace have all discovered ways to meet that are both effective and tailored for them.
