An Exercise in Theological Imagination: Missing Constructs and Management Implications

  • Randal S. Franz


Modern management theory and practice is predicated upon a world of order, power, hierarchy, and sin. These profoundly theological constructs describe the reality within which we live and thereby frame the kind of organizations we create. But what if this vision of reality is incomplete? In this essay, I explore the management implications of four “missing” (i.e., under-appreciated) theological constructs that depict inherently relational and personal beings living in a communal and redemptive reality.
