We organize to achieve what we can’t do alone. Most often we organize through the creation of groups, firms and other kinds of entities. But what must we do for an organization to emerge? What are our choices when we organize? What is obvious when organizing and what mysteries are we likely to unexpectedly encounter? In this TEDx talk, American academic and author Jerome Katz seeks to empower listeners to organize better to achieve their goals, and be more mindful of the process, power and possibilities of organizing.
