Organizations are complex and simple; a dialectic of both. Quite
simply an organization is a group of people coming together to
accomplish or move forward, a particular purpose, function or
objective. The complexity lies in the uniqueness of the individuals
who necessarily must operate cohesively to serve the organization.
An outside observer who has the opportunity to spend time with those
individuals has the unique prospect of seeing clearly, what is often
obscured to those within the milieu. Of value also is to be able to
see the systems at work and the layers and layers of interacting
systems that cause the complexity. Issues once obscured can become
obvious and then resolution is possible.
