The analogy to living organisms stimulates some interesting thoughts, Leo.
I see the parallel between the individual entrepreneur who must handle
everything being like the single cell that can mutate to survive, and the
cells of our bodies being more like the functions in a large organization.
The rate of mutation in the larger body is generally slower and according
to Darwin, this causes some to die off that cannot mutate quickly enough.

Would this lead you to the conclusion that LO behaviours are essential to
long-term survival of an organization?
