Human impact on our planet is now so pervasive that Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen coined a new term to describe it: he said that we are now living in the Anthropocene – a new epoch in which we humans have become a major driving force affecting many of the fundamental processes on our planet. We need to rethink our approach to management and strategic decision making in this new Anthropocene epoch. We need to rid ourselves of some assumptions that may have worked in previous times, but that have become counterproductive myths today.
