Advancing the trend of seeing organizations in biological terms, this volume takes the next step beyond the learning organization. It's about creating an organization that behaves like a human being - instantly able to adapt to new and ever-changing conditions. Moshe Rubinstein calls this a minding organization, where the right hand literally knows what the left hand is doing. In a minding organization, all parties involved in a project - whether it's developing a product, streamlining a process, or changing a strategy - get together from the start to explore the issues. This collaboration can unearth valuable information not normally available so early on, and enable the company to avoid potentially costly mistakes. High-level connectedness is the hallmark of the minding organization, and the surest way to achieve competitive advantage.
