“Autistic” Organizations

Going through some of this stuff about organizational behavior, it struck me that if you look at many organizations as a super-organism, and compare its behavior and characteristics to an individual human’s behavior (a stretch, I know), you will see an organization that looks very much like it is autistic.

You can see all the hallmarks: no theory of mind, overload (inability to effectively process) of information.
