In this paper I would like to elaborate on the use of Flamenco (in all its characteristics) as a metaphor for an organisation, and in particular for a holistic organisation. Compared to other music styles, flamenco is much more of a holistic experience, in its rhythm, harmony, musical warmth, but moreover also in the fact that flamenco, at least according to some, is an expression of the spiritual. Flamenco can easily be doted with a multidimensional and transversal character. An initial discovery of flamenco might help managers and management students to better understand, but equally "feel", the concept of the holistic company.
