Management is about: Order & consistency, protecting the existing structure, systems, traditions and the status quo, the belief that past success gives insight into the way forward and relying on accumulated facts. Vs. Leadership, which is about: creating change, vision, direction, organisation, values and destruction of the way we have always done it.

In designing shared values in an organisation every personnel, customers, and stakeholders concerned in achieving the goals of the organisation must be fully involved. In modern day world of work there is a huge emphasis on participation and motivation in achieving goals. Kouzes & Posner (1993) mentioned that one of the precondition to establish credibility and trust between the leader and its employees is to develop a participatory approach in all programmes implemented by the organisation. Furthermore, they also maintained when an organisation becomes participatory in its approach there is a shift from the leader as the beginning and the end to ensuring total ownership of the values by all employees, customers and stakeholders. Pruzan (1998) also recommends that to ensure effective participation of employees there must be a communication strategy that create a space for them to input in the development of the values through a dialogue process with the senior management team.

The data owner should be able to establish, and uphold, data principals for all users, including executives and board members who have access to data beyond receiving reports from the data. The owner will treat data as an asset to the company, and get others to treat data in the same manner (Khatri & Brown, 2010, p. 150). The use of the data, both external and internal, should be treated with confidentiality in regards to customers and contracted associates. The data owner should be a trusted position with some lower level connections as executives might not need to be bothered with management of data systems, while anyone lower than a VP would be too low on the hierarchy (Brown, 2012, p. 167). Therefore, a VP directly reporting to the CIO should be the data owner.

In line with this theory, the surrounding units include employees, the public, shareholders, corporate partners, the government and the general public. The theory demonstrates that each of these stakeholders have a role in the success of an organization. An organization that needs to maintain and take care of its clients should first focus on taking care of its employees. As Morgeson, Mitchell, and Dong (2015) allude, employees will always take care of the organization 's clients if they are taken care of. In essence, when an organization works with satisfied employees, the employees will try as much as possible to ensure they have a sustainable job through working for the benefit of the organization’s sustainability.
