An overview vision for the Entrepreneurial Organization

Our launch press release last week contained a high-level vision for the Entrepreneurial Organization. I added a couple permanent links to it in the right-side column, but thought I should go ahead and mention it in an official post. I made it two links to the same thing so people could find it whether they're looking for the launch press release or a description of the vision.

You may have seen a "rated-G" edited version of the press release, which Business Wire required us to substitute so as not to offend any sensitive journalists with the word "sucks". It, unfortunately, lost a lot of its punch in the process. Fortunately, they did allow us to release the original "rated-PG" version on their EON site, where it should permanently reside - and that's the one we're linking to.

Over time on this blog, I expect to try and flesh out more of the details of the Entrepreneurial Organization behind the vision.

With reference to the PG version, i.e. "work sucks because our organizations suck ... maybe it's because of my infantry training (once you get over comfort/discomfort you're pretty well unstoppable), or maybe from my Buddhist training (see about re: comfort/discomfort) but I'm quite willing do do what sucks, when and as necessary.

But to have Katrina hit and no drinking water gets deployed? We know that those big over-grown "O" rings on Colombia don't like being deep-chilled, but we send it up anyhow?

Nope ... as a principled practitioner I withdraw my services.

Well ... for a while. Sorta. Kinda.

I read the FAQ. I don't see a lot of low-hanging fruit. I don't see a sure thing. What I did see looks to me like an intelligent alternative.
