POWERFUL and PERVASIVE. Modern civilization (i.e. WE) could not exist without them.
For example, this cruise ship is a floating ORG and part of a bigger corporate org. But the small owner-operated fishing boat (also an org) is very different in size, resources, and independence.
The cab driver & street vendor, like the fishing boat are independent hustlers, i.e. small entrepreneurs.
But they depend on certain ORGs - to rent equipment (cab), for supplies and fuel, city licenses etc.
The ship's engineer (in pic above) is an org. employee, with HR benefits, not like the self-employed hustlers in the "gig economy".
Hi. Barry Sugarman here.
Welcome to this personal view on ORGs in our lives. I get much of this from my time with the Society for Org. Learning, once at MIT. Many helped me to learn but I take full blame for how I tell it here with my words & my photos.
I tried to make the first few pages easy to read but then I go progressively deeper and more theoretical.
Best wishes - B
Many, many ORGs affect us,
e.g. IRS, FDA, NFL, IBM, Amazon, Google, NBC, MTA, school, VISA, state & city government, etc.
MAKE YOUR OWN LIST.
