Replying to LO23859 --

I am not sure where the agendas lie when participants make the aspects (or
some aspects) of a learning organization a religion. Idolatry is
idolatry. When and where did this espoused theory (a framework) for
organizational effectiveness and achievement turn into a pursuit of
spiritual oneness and harmony with the "gods?"
