Organization as Transformer

Organization means “the act or process of organizing, the arranging of parts in an organic whole”. When Others and you are dancing, transforming, you are organizing something into being. Or work within it, try to change it, or meet it on its own terms.

Everything is organized, from insects to angels, soil to solar systems. “Organization Development” was my work in large corporations for many years. If we think of really large organizations as giants, the stories tell us that giants have maps, resources, can help you travel fast, and you get them interested by asking the right questions.
