"Seed" Planting <Idea>

08/26/2007

Build positive cultural/institutional structures that grow organically and are self perpetuating.

This idea is not necessarily new, but you realize how powerful and important this can be with a system perspective.

There are several examples of organizations growing and self-perpetuating through the right types of structures.  It would be useful to study what makes the most sucessful ones succeed and grow.

Some example organizations that have grown organically.  All of them started very small and became world-wide organizations.

  • Toastmasters
  • Alcoholics Anonymous     
  • Knights of Columbus
  • Micro-loan organizations   
  • Religions such as Christianity, Islam and Buddhism
