St Benedict (c.480-547) wrote a rule book that for 14 centuries has influenced monastic life throughout the world and continues to guide, spiritually and practically, the Benedictine order. Ampleforth Abbey in Yorkshire has recognised the power of the Rule for guiding life and work in the modern world and has been running courses for business people that explore the value of St Benedict's teaching. Managing permanent, rapid change is the ultimate task for business from now on. The Rule has been helping the Benedictines to successfully enable and manage change for over a thousand years. Its stress on realism, vision and perseverance in the context of strong communities provides businesses large and small with a way forward to survival and success.
