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



It includes a common-sense decision-making framework that requires no specialized knowledge or elaborate technology to utilize, and is applicable in any environment or management situation. This book is an essential handbook for anyone involved with land management and stewardship - ranchers, farmers, resource managers, and others - and a valuable guide for all those seeking to make better decisions within their organizations or in any aspect of their personal lives. Expanding the Uses of the Holistic M a n a g e m e n t Model.

Savory's decision making and management process is known as Holistic Management. uk Powell's Savoryinstitute. Related Books and Magazines. For the Love of Land Allan Savory. Holistic Resource Management: A Model for a Healthy Planet Allan Savory. Holistic Management is really two books in one. The first book is about a new approach to decision-making based on including important factors that are not usually considered. It's also a book about applying these well-structured decisions to landscapes, and specifically to working with livestock. These two books are so well integrated that it's impossible to pull them apart.

Holistic Management has been on my to-read list for a while now, and I'm kicking myself for not having gotten to it sooner. Having had some experience managing land and livestock, I mistakenly underestimated Mr. Savory and assumed this book would be a big, complicated grazing system manual - part primer and part groundbreaking grazing methods. Not so. To the extent that he described basic ecological processes and management tools that your typical MIG practitioner would already know well, he did so under the scope of his holistic decision-making framework, which is the real prize here

This book will make you think and if you care about your environment and lives you will make the changes. The changes are not hard but will take effort.

I am not a highly educated person but try to learn all the time. High school education is the extent of my "book schooling" but I have learned from a few people and from my many mistakes. I love the outdoors and animals and have tried to do things right for each. Most people around me (some very educated) do not care about nature just how much they can get out of something to make a profit in the shortest amount of time without thinking about what they are doing to their animals or land. They wonder why their animals are not getting pregnant and why their grass is getting thinner even though they put on the fertilizer they were told to. This book has the answers.

I bought this book to help with my pastures but it has helped with so much more. There are many books out there on the subject but Mr. Savory explains it in great detail with common sense and actually gives you a plan to follow. His mistakes, yes he owns up to them and accepts responsibility for them, takes you through them so you can see how he progressed in his thinking and experience.

His quote about "true profit" will hang in every area I work to remind me of the Whole. Thanks Mr. Savory you have inspired me!!!

At first I couldn't understand why this book was recommended to me for my new business planning. Once I got through the evolution of the process and implemented the suggestions I was able to understand how powerful this book's tools are to fulfilling everyone's expectations or understanding how to work pull together when there are apparently different needs.

The theory understanding that goes along with the practical application handbook. I need to understand the why of a practice before I am comfortable trying out something new and this book clearly helps with that understanding. Awesome amounts of info to help us get started and in anticipation of taking one of the holistic courses in person early next year.

... And I am neither a farmer nor a rancher (although it might just encourage me to become one).

This is a radical, world changing book. If you let it, it will change the way you think about your life and about the world.

It is certainly changing the way I make decisions.

It's effect on me will take a while to sink in ... I'll probably come back in a year's time to add to this review!

There have been some criticisms of Savory's work. This article refutes those criticisms in a useful way, I think, just in case you were worried.

Holistic Management has been on my to-read list for a while now, and I'm kicking myself for not having gotten to it sooner. Having had some experience managing land and livestock, I mistakenly underestimated Mr. Savory and assumed this book would be a big, complicated grazing system manual - part primer and part groundbreaking grazing methods. Not so. To the extent that he described basic ecological processes and management tools that your typical MIG practitioner would already know well, he did so under the scope of his holistic decision-making framework, which is the real prize here. As a pleasant plus, his writing style is the soft it's-so-simple-that-I-can't-believe-I-never-thought-of-that voice which tempers the fact that he's repeatedly blowing your mind with paradigm-shattering ideas and explaining the current reality of our world with such succinctness that frustrates me, because I know I'll never be able to relay this information to others with the same clarity and articulation. As you can likely tell, I'm not ashamed to admit that I frequently pitched a tent while working my way through HM - yet another pleasant bonus.

That being so, and judging by Mr. Savory's broad success among his diverse clientele, this book needs to be on the shelf of every head-of-household, business owner/exec, store or service manager, state and social worker, etc. It will be well worth your time to work your way through it, even if you find yourself having to skip over the sections where he delves into grazing and crop management (though it would be well worth your time to read those parts too). What's nice is that the tools, scalable-management guidelines, and testing questions he provides all have stand-alone value, meaning you can immediately benefit from simply selecting and studying suitable sections. Of course, the true benefits will come with the complete adoption of his management system, so I'd at least encourage you to peruse these pages and test his framework on aspects of your life.

Do the world a favor - buy it; read it; live it.

very educational, important new concepts for farmers, business men, and gov leaders but a bit difficult to read
