Organizations (7.1.9)


Organization Terminology and Organization Types (Part #14)


[Parts: First | Prev | All] [Links: From-K | From-Kx ]


A large organization may create bodies to undertake specific activities. The political, legal, and financial circumstances under which such bodies are established may render them relatively autonomous even though links to the parent body are maintained. Typical activities include :

  • information centre
  • training college
  • library                                
  • laboratory advisory service               
  • research institute
  • museum                             
  • educational academy

Other bodies, with the same level of preoccupation, may be created under a variety of circumstances such that the relation to the creating body or bodies becomes tenuous or of   limited   significance.   Such   organizations,   particularly when active at one physical location only, differ somewhat (especially in terms of the status of membership) from conventional international bodies.

Use of a generalized meeting/organization framework to classify organization types (and to map their structural components)

(Portions of several such diagrams could be shaded as appropriate to facilitate comparison of complex structures.)
