An interesting perspective on the distinction between religious belief and scientific understanding has been provided by Karen Armstrong, who relates them to two complementary modes of human thinking, both with ancient pedigrees and given the classical Greek names of 'logos' and 'mythos'.

The organisation needs creativity, flexibility, the ability to work in a small team, and so on, from the job holder. In line with the person-organisation fit described earlier, it is important to think beyond the technical aspects of the job to the cultural aspects of the organisation.
