I just finished reading a fascinating book, One from Many: VISA and the Rise of Chaordic Organization, by Dee Hock. The book explores three questions and tells a story how this exploration by Dee Hock led to the formation of VISA. The three questions are:
1. Why are organizations, everywhere, political, commercial, and social, increasingly unable to manage their affairs?
2. Why are individuals, everywhere, increasingly in conflict with and alienated from the organizations of which they are part?
3. Why are society and biosphere increasingly in disarray?
If you have anything to do with Organizational Development, you may enjoy the book.
