  2. ”There are four table legs in package development: usability, saleability, environmental friendliness and production effectiveness.

  5. Contribution Traditionally managers are assumed to evaluate risks at a cognitive level, based largely on the feasibility and desirability of packaging opportunities and associated consequences. We add feeling to the list of tools that can help managers to embrace the risk, evaluate alternatives and make more responsible strategic packaging decisions. Through its capacity to signal meaning and trigger and support responsible change in companies, feeling has an impact on commitment. It influences how the manager sails towards the right direction during sustainable transition, and overcomes uncertainties and risks when chasing a moving target.
