Replying to LO16701 --


You present a wonderful problem. It sounds like, for the most part, things
are going the way you would like them. You mention the hierarchical
structure that exists, and say "it does cause some problems." Of course it
does. And so will any other structure you chose. There will always be
"some problems." The solution isn't found in the structure; it is in what
you and those you work with value.

If you value each person, solicit their input, and involve them in the
decision-making process as much as possible you will see teamwork begin to
flourish. As ideas begin to be expressed, they will compete with one
another, sometimes passionately and some times indifferently. But as the
group discusses the problems and the opportunities the best ideas will
hopefully take root and begin to grow.

The thing I would spend most of my time trying to figure out is how to
make sure the right ideas get implemented.
