As I seek to try and build a beautiful organization, I realize that structure is closely associated with one’s concept of beauty. Structure is foundational to design. I find it difficult, however, to devise the ultimate structure for my multifarious operation.
Every form seems flawed. I’ve learned to survive with ambiguity, and the tradeoffs associated with business, but I suspect that there is a different kind of problem at work here. Overt structure can distract from seeing the natural structure associated with wholeness, health, and beauty. This requires one to think more of business as organism rather than organization.
If the human body were “organized”, we would all be dysfunctional, if not dead.
