The best way to think of an organization is as a collection of rights, privileges, obligations, and responsibilities that are balanced over time through conflict and resolution. In other words, an organization is a collection of relationships and interactions. Throughout time, these relationships and patterns of interaction become established as practices within the organization; for instance, a way of creating products, holding meetings, deploying technology. Over time, through both habit and repetition, these practices become institutionalized – thus forming the structure of the organization. As time goes by, people within the organization draw from this structure when interacting with each other. In simple terms, interactions form structure, and that structure influences interactions.
