Hosting the former Japanese Prime Minister at MUM’s 2015 Commencement

The 2015 commencement speaker at Maharishi University of Management’s graduation on May 23 was Dr. Yukio Hatoyama, the former prime minister of Japan.


Dr. Hatoyama has a PhD from Stanford in the same department from which I got my PhD, called Management Science and Engineering, though I arrived at Stanford a year after he had left. That may have been part of the reason that President Morris asked me and my wife Vicki, to host Dr. Hatoyama and his wife around the campus on the day before his speech—also,...

Resilience and the Coexistence of Opposites

Resilience is most powerful when opposites are harmonized in a system. Peters and Waterman expressed this idea in their seminal book In Search of Excellence (1982) as the concept of simultaneous loose/tight coupling. It is also central in Maharishi’s teaching about the coexistence of opposites, which is a characteristic of Creative Intelligence, which grows as consciousness expands due to the practice of Transcendental Meditation (SCI Manual, 1972).  What do I mean? In this blog post I will explain. This post is somewhat abstract, so I will try to make it...

Resilience and Life Shocks

The reality is that almost everyone at some time experiences a shock of some sort; moreover, companies have to endure market, industry local and global economy shocks. In this posting I look at resilience on the individual, company, and societal level in search of common elements to help weather and even thrive in chaos-inducing situations. Connecting our consciousness with our silent, infinite, unbounded Self makes us more resilient as individuals, managers and leaders.

On a personal level a shock can be a traumatic experience, an illness or a disaster of...

Alex Cequea: BA, Business, 2009; MBA, Sustainable Business, 2010

Two years ago, Alex was featured in the MUM Alumni Profiles, but it looks like he’s done a lot since then. About a year ago, Alex sold his share of ownership of iPhone Life magazine to his partners (who are also MUM alumni), and suddenly found himself in a very privileged position: no wife, no kids, and no job responsibilities!

Resilience and Agile Project Management

Continuing in our investigation of resilience and management, we find that resilience is a personal subjective characteristic and that it can be developed through Transcendental Meditation, for example, which is provided at Maharishi University of Management. Resilience is also found in ecosystems that are able to be robust to changes in their environment, including firms which are stable and also adaptable. This reminds one of Maharishi’s fundamentals of progress, which are stability, adaptability, purification, integration and growth.

I should like to discuss a term called agile project management. This is...
