I'd also like to recommend to fellow LOers to visit the site. Here's a
teaser from the Case Studies page:

"The patterns in this book were drawn from empirical studies of about a
hundred organizations in dozens of companies in several countries around
the world. To bring the patterns more down to earth, this chapter looks at
three actual case studies of organizations we have worked with." ("book"
refers to the site as well as the actual published book that's supposed to
result from the efforts of the contributers.)

As to participating, I don't know quite how open it is. A good place to
start would be a message to Jim Coplien,, who
is the administrator of the site and one of the authors.

(Rick, you and I have discussed setting up a WikiWikiWeb for the LO list.
How about contacting Cope and discussing the possibility of hosting an LO
"ThoughtsWeaver" adjoined in some way to the OrgPatterns site?)

[Host's Note: Dwig, I'm interested. ..Rick]

I gotta admit, one of my favorite activities is making connections that have
a chance of becoming fruitful!

Best wishes,
