Tzimtzum for Organizations

By Shawn Landres

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2010

This article explores the role of tzimtzum (pulling back or self-contraction), in an organizational setting. The author states that this concept helps an organization realize its limits and that it cannot achieve goals by itself. He also asserts the importance of co-creation, emphasizing that success is not reliant on any individual organizational activity to achieve goals but that it requires the partnership of many.
