Abstract

The individuals operating within organizations often know how to do their jobs better than they actually do them. Much like the crusty old farmer they already know how to farm a lot better than they actually do. Organizations operate in much the same way. First, because they are made up of individuals and second, because they are infused with group social norms, work routines, and standards of behavior that collectively inhibit the organization from making best use of what it collectively knows.
