Holistic Management: A New Framework for Decision Making by Allan Savory and Jody Butterfield

Holistic Management: A New Framework for Decision Making, Allan Savory and Jody Butterfield (Island Press, 1998)

This work shows that on the most fundamental level, environmental problems are cuased by human management decisions rather than the commonly blamed culprits of environmental degradation, overpopulation, poor farming practices and lack of financial support.

In considering humans, their economies and the environment as inseparable, the holistic management approach is intended as a revolutionary decision-making framework. It has been practised by thousands of people around the world to profitably restore and promote the health of their land, and the book is aimed at anyone involved with any form of environmental and resource management who is seeking to make better decisions.

Editor’s note: While this book is often considered a tool for farmers and ranchers, the holistic decision-making process is applicable to personal and business decision-making across the board.
