Discussion post for The Science of Sucess

Written by chris on November 30th, 2009

In The Science of Success, Charles Koch has attempted to synthesize the classical foundations of prosperity and present them as a generalized process for creating sustainable value—in the case of Koch industries this is represented by an impressive history of wealth creation. As you reflect upon the readings this semester, and the foundations of “vision, virtue & talents, knowledge processes, decision rights and incentives,” presented in Science of Success I am interested in whether you think Mr. Koch has missed anything. Has he really created a generalized model of “success” that can be applied to societies, organizations and individuals? How important is the “science of liberty” to the “science of success?”
