Are Organizations Alive?
With each passing year, organizations act more and more like living entities thanks to the evolution of technology.
The notion that organizations might be a form of life is a radical perspective. It is useful as metaphor, but through this and future articles, I hope to persuade you that an “organization as life” perspective is more than just metaphor.

Are Organizations Alive? A Different Take on the Evolution of Technology
I share this again for two reasons. One, because this piece marks an important shift in the direction of my writing going forward and I am eager to gain more perspectives on it. And, two, because I encourage you to browse through the excellent commentary. These comments are easily visible at the bottom of the article because I’m using Google Comments (just be sure to click on the “View all X replies” under the first comment). Alternatively, you can go to the original post here:
