In the incident of the NWSF, each committee had different views about its timeline , and people at the top did not realize the gap between them and other workers. This was the very beginning of its failure.
A recipe=How do I know what I think until I see I see what I say?Identity construction---define yourself. You should know who you are, and also recognize what is out here. 2) Retrospection---memory You look back what you said in the past for better understanding3) Enactment---activity of making sensed. Making rules creates new features of the environment4) Socialization You are recognized by who you socialized and how you so5) Continuation--- sense-making never starts or stops People are always in the middle of something. 6) Extracted cues People have purpose to outcome something, and to make it happen they need cues.7) Plausibility---reasonableness Sense-making is about accounts that socially acceptable and credible, not about accuracy.
This loose coupling did not work for NWSF since the aim was way too broad and workers and volunteers d id not know where to go. If it was more organized and clear abut is plan, this might have worked.
Participants had been putting so much efforts to make the NWSF successful in such a short time period. They tried to push back the date, but the organization did not listen. All participants have their own life besides this as a parent or a community leader, the organization can expect all workers and volunteers to put all of their time into preparing for this event. Eventually, a lot of people lost their motivation, and it was one of the reasons that the NWSF was cancelled.

Weick’s opinion about the organization<br />Organization could be…<br />In complex and unpredictable environment<br />The job of the organization <br />Making sense of the environments<br />How?<br />Through interaction =“equivocal reduction”<br />
Equivocal Situation<br />The situation/ event happens<br /> Interpreted in different ways <br />How to reduce the difference<br /> Weick’s approach<br />There could be misunderstanding!<br />
Weick’s model of organizing<br />Enactment---creates environments<br />Selection---collective sense making<br />Retention---reinforces selections and options<br />
