Term Main definition

In orgtology we use the acronym Org for the word Organisation. Org is a system of interdependent activity that has a collective purpose. It differs from a system in that Org has human presence. A system like the eco system needs no human intervention. Org is thus the collaboration of human minds and systems intelligence. One can see Org as a network of processes that link human minds. The key requirement for being an organisation is that it holds a collective purpose and shares a collective intent. According to its most commonly understood definition, an organization is the coordination of separate elements into a unit or structure, and the management of the relationship that exists between such elements. In orgamatics we advocate that one should understand an organization as a system, which is born through purpose, kept alive by energy and intelligence, and driven by intent. I therefore see it as a living organism. External sponsorship is the only way to secure organizational survival. Therefore, we must manage intent, energy, and intelligence optimally to ensure that Org stays purposeful to its external environment who needs to continue its sponsorship of the organization. Organizations take various forms, e.g. Private Business, Government Departments, Non-profit Organizations, Semi-Government Organizations, etc. In his “Anatomy of Org” model, Derek Hendrikz poses that all organisations have a similar anatomy.


General Description...

An organization or organisation is an entity comprising multiple people, such as an institution or an association, that has a particular purpose. The word is derived from the Greek word organon, which means tool or instrument, musical instrument, and organ.
