Replying to LO29478 --

Dear At, dear participants in the great story,

Thanks for the link. We're again picking up elements of a storying
culture. We're weaving the different story-lines into a new picture.
Altough i would have called it The Humble Tale, because we, humble human
beings, are only at the tail of the universe.

Perhaps we should talk about the "Evolving Organisation" as the successor
to the "Learning Organisation". Evolving Organisations know that they
exist in relation with their own environment. They - we - are being
shaped, formed, created by their -our - environment and thereby reshape,
reform and recreate their and our environment.

Take care,

Jan Lelie
