Organization sabotage and the butterfly effect

To run a team, manage a group, or lead an organization means you line people up yell, “ready, steady, go” and we folk hum along without need, guidance, motivation, communication, or care for anyone but the organization.

The reason a professional might call for an organization intervention comes from the feeling of organization sabotage.

Something is wrong.

Someones needs help.

We need to intervene.

The most difficult industry to work in

One industry is not more complex than another. It is not the industry that demands an organization norm. Organizations are made and conceived as products of human interaction and social construction rather than an expression of an underlying industry, natural order.

People form the organization, the accumulation of organizations make up an industry segment.

People drive an organization’s effectiveness, mood, and culture. Not process, not technology, but people.
