A way of guiding thinking
LUO June
Any theory is a way of guiding thinking. It is not totally the same with the down-to-earth. It is the abstract of realities. An organization in the real worid is always a combination.
 

 
Theories in the real world
Cristina Mihai
Fully agreed with the distinction between black & white (as presented in theories) and the palette of shades existent in the real world. Yet it's highly important where you start defining your world boundaries from, right?
I believe 40 yrs of experiments with bits and pieces of management & business approaches have managed to prove one thing: that the systemic approach of organisations (which obviously relates to the organic approach) is closer to the reality than the other option. People don't live in mechanical order - they are living systems which through social interactions create supra-systems, and we'd better start thinking organisations this way if we want to get rid of the organisational pathology around. Your thoughts?
