Replying to LO7491 --

While I agree that organization charts as such are "wistful, even
fanciful, abstracts ...," I suggest that they are important "tips"
that suggest the huge, invisible iceberg.

Questions I often ask when I meet a new organization chart are, "How
has this organization chart been created? What process was used? How
has it evolved?" The answers, as you can imagine, are often quite
revealing of the values, power relationships, and status symbols of
the people in the group.
