The Myth Of Organizational Values

I think we all need to wake up to the fact that organizations are artificial constructs and stop the pretence that they are “real” and “living” organisms that have some kind of magical cognizance and self-awareness.  Organizations are not sentient beings.  In fact, there are not beings at all.
