From the Paper:

"When managing the economic realities of a company while keeping the demand in mind, the managerial theories of Peter Senge are applicable. Peter Senge, a management consultant, fully supports and advances the use of team dynamics to capitalize upon the human assets available to a company. When considering executives' performances across a company, there is little doubt that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Thus it is important to capitalize upon the entire machine and not merely one portion."
