Throughout my journey from the bottom up in numerous organizations, witnessing the intricate theater of human interaction, I’ve experienced companies truly coming alive.

When viewed as a living entity, an organization gains a new dimension, having the ability to change, morph, and adapt as circumstances evolve.

This demands that its members strike a balance between generalizing and specializing simultaneously.

One must possess a broad enough perspective to grasp the big picture and understand the system’s fluctuations, while also being specialized enough to manage their immediate connections.

Being overly specialized may hinder one’s ability to see and comprehend the impact of events beyond their immediate circle and the potential ripple effects of their actions.

On the other hand, being overly generalized may prevent one from understanding the details of their work, which is necessary for effective action.

In either case, it is important to be able to move fluidly between these two extremes and maintain a balance between them.
