Luis, I think this question is incredibly germane to some other work I'm
doing in another organization. I'm going to need to reflect on it before
positing and answer.

I have another question for Rick, our host. What is the list's protocol of
sharing thoughts like this with other organizations? Do we ask the
originator for posting before using? Normally that is what I would do, but
this is network is larger than it's parts. Do we cite Learning-org? Thanks
for helping me understand the list's culture better and being faithful to
shared learning.
