  2. 2. Organization: A group of people joined in a set of relationships for the purpose of carrying out a mission. lloyd.jacobs@utoledo.edu
  3. 3. Organizational Chart: Rudimentary, inadequate attempt to describe those relationships. Other more important relationships include the “customer relationship,” “scientific collaborations,” friendships. My hope is to deemphasize the org chart not to emphasize it. lloyd.jacobs@utoledo.edu
