How can it help you?

"One can try to understand a phenomenon either by isolating it from other variables or through putting it in the larger context and seeing it in relation with another phenomenon. The Indian preference tilts towards the latter approach."
"You cannot study a river as an object. You can only understand it in terms of its flow and the terrain through which it passes. Hence any approach which denies the fluid and dynamic nature of the self and attempts to understand the Indian reality in terms of tightly defined categories will not be able to capture the complexity and nuances of the individual / collective experience."

The EUM has been deployed across a wide range of organizations – Indian and multinational companies and not-for-profit entities. EUM practitioners have used the framework and the tools in India, China, Philippines, Spain and the UAE. Individual respondents have been from a wider range of nationalities. The framework is non-normative and does not hold a priori stances on what is desirable at the individual and collective levels. The emphasis is on understanding phenomena ‘as is’, relying on dialogue amongst the relevant individuals and groups, and invoking their inherent wisdom and choice-making capacities. This makes it eminently suitable for use across diverse contexts.
