Linking the Trifecta to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics

Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics serves as a philosophical foundation for the Grandmaster’s Playbook, now redefined as the Adaptive Innovation Triad. Aristotle emphasized the importance of practical wisdom (phronesis), scientific knowledge (episteme), and technical skill (techne). These elements align with the triad’s core principles:
  1. Viability (Phronesis)
    • Practical wisdom in making sound, ethical decisions for sustainable success.
  2. Feasibility (Techne)
    • Technical skills and know-how to implement effective, actionable strategies.
  3. Desirability (Episteme)
    • Understanding and knowledge to align with stakeholders’ needs and create meaningful value.
This alignment ensures that the framework drives business success and adheres to ethical principles and practical wisdom, fostering a balanced and comprehensive approach to organizational development. The Trifecta of Long-Term Success is an adaptation of the Grandmaster’s Playbook, created in 2021.
