Reintroduces the concept of an integration phase in an organization′s social system to bring together its economic and technical sub‐systems, and to synthesize individual and organizational needs. Details the basic principles and values inherent in such a phase, relates it to business‐led learning, TQM, lean production, the learning company, work structuring, and the “greening” of organizations. A major change of consciousness lies behind “integration” – to externally oriented, perception consciousness focused on the needs of people and groups. Warns against the shadow side of over‐commitment to integration.
