Good and bad organizations
Ben Horowitz in A Good Place to Work
In good organizations, people can focus on their work and have confidence that if they get their work done, good things will happen for both the company and them personally. […] In a poor organization, on the other hand, people spend much of their time fighting organizational boundaries, infighting and broken processes.
It may sound like a large company’s problem, but it can also be a small group’s problem. A group of people is not a team, and making a functional team is a lot of work.
