Admittedly, I work for a pretty small organization (<25 people) but what I see is the organization-centered activities and the network-centered activities going on pretty much independently. There isn’t any stopping the network activities in a membership organization, but there would be great benefit to bringing it into the organization fold. I don’t envy our Communications team in trying to pull this off. I am pushing for establishing a communities-of-practice-type structure for supporting the different members’ interests but there is tension between top-down control and bottom-up initiative. I see this as a challenge for training, but more so for the overall organization. The desire for control runs deep in most leaders, I believe. That is how they got where they are.
