That was the day he first saw the possibilities of a &quot;learning organization&quot; that used &quot;systems thinking&quot; as the primary tenet of a revolutionary management philosophy. He advanced the concept into this primer, originally released in 1990, written for those interested in integrating his philosophy into their corporate culture.

  25. 25. Great Groups Greatness starts with superb people. Great Groups and great leaders create each other. Every Great Group has a strong leader. Leaders of Great Groups love talent and know where to find it. Great groups are full of talented people who can work together. Great Groups think they are on a mission from God. Every Great Group has an island -- with a bridge to the mainland. Great Groups see themselves as winning underdogs. Great Groups always have an enemy - a Vision and a Goal! People in Great Groups have blinders on. Great Groups are optimistic, not realistic. In Great Groups the right person has the right job Leaders give Great Group what they need, free them from the rest. Great Groups ship. Great work is its own reward.
