What is an Organization?
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
Someone asked me the other day: what exactly is an organization?

DEFINITION OF AN ORGANIZATION
Well, in in simple terms, an organization is defined as: "an entity comprising one or more people that has at least one particular purpose". An organization is usually made up of various sub-organizations like business units and departments with specialized tasks.

EXAMPLES OF ORGANIZATIONS
Typical examples of organizations are:
  • A business firm / company / corporation (for profit organizations)
  • A government agency
  • An NGO
  • An association of volunteers
  • A charity
  • Various strategic alliances and partnerships
  • A joint-venture
  • An educational institution
  • A Sign up
