Very true. I'm just thinking about my workplace. The org charts change constantly, but what makes it work is the organism--the people and their cooperation and interaction with each other. Org charts are neat abstractions that diagram nothing more substantial than theoretical responsibility.

The organism is essentially unchartable. Every person is a web with strands connecting to many others. And those are the lines that really count. Of course, I think you meant church more than a business, but your analogy is pretty universal.
