This paper examines "Leading Without Power: Finding Hope in Serving Community" by Max De Pree, and explains how De Pree's lessons apply to modern society. The paper looks at De Pree's theory that non-profit organizations can be used as a model for corporation culture, and discusses the Soviet theory of input measurement, and how De Pree applies the theory to getting results in modern day corporations.

From the Paper:

"Max De Pree, author of Leading Without Power: Finding Hope in Serving Community, was the CEO of Herman Miller, the office furniture company, and had written two books before this one. This one explores an interesting anomaly in American culture: The fact that the nation with the most vibrant business sector on the planet also has a thriving non-profit sector, and it is that sector that provides most of the satisfaction individuals derive from their lifetime pursuits."
