ORGANIZING BOARD, (org board) a board that shows what functions are done in the org, the order they are done in, and who is responsible for getting them done. (HCO Admin Ltr 30 Jul 75) 2. the pattern of the terminals and their flows. You have to have an org board and the org board must in truth be a representation of what is in the org. The org board shows where what terminals are located in the org so flows can occur. (HCO PL 7 Jul 71) 3. org board is actually an abbreviation not for an organization (noun) board but an organizing (verb) board. The org board shows the pattern of organizing to obtain a product. A board then is a flow chart of consecutive products brought about by terminals in series. We see 32 these terminals as “posts” or positions. Each one of these is a hat. There is a flow along these hats. The result of the whole board is a product. The product of each hat on the board adds up to the total product. (HCO PL 28 Oct 70) 4. a proper org board is a perpetual combination of flows which do not collide with one another and which do enter
and do experience the desired change and which do leave as a product. (HCO PL 13
Sept 70 II) 5. the org board is the general plan, the function indicator, the routing and the personnel situation for the org. (HCO PL 17 Apr 70) 6. consists of the terminals, actions and flows necessary to achieve an overall purpose and to prevent distractions and stops from the purpose. (691OC20 SO) 7. that arrangement of persons, lines and actions which classifies types of confusions and gives a stable terminal to each type. It is as effective as its people can conceive of terminals and understand the basic principle of confusions and stable data. (HCO PL 27 Oct 69) 8. the org board consists of a couple sheets of clear blue Formica, 4 feet high by more than 8’9″ long. It can be longer than 8’9″. That is the minimum. That gives one department only five inches of width. A yellow vertical stripe of cellotape split in half separates departments in a division and divisions are separated by a full width of it. A thin strip of green goes all along the top of the departments. The level word goes above each department and the yellow tape. The command lines are in red cellotape. The names of departments are cut on a Dymo using tape approximating the color flash of the department as feasible. Executive Secretaries and secretary titles and names are in gold Dymo tape. Directors’ titles and names are in gold banded brown tape. Other executives’ titles and names are in gold banded black tape. Communicators are in this tape. Section names are in the same tape color as the department name. All subsections or units are the same tape color as the department name. All general staff members are in plain green tape. All provisional or temporary staff members are in black tape. The name of a deputy is in green tape but the title, even when preceded by “deputy” is the color code as above. (HCO PL 7 Jun 65, New Org Board Design) 9. the actual diagrammatic pattern of the organization showing the divisions, departments, their personnel, functions and lines of communication. This pattern fully drawn out is known as the org (organizing) board. (BPL 4 Jul 69R VI) 10. a list of hats with seniorities. The hats are in flow sequence. (OODs 29 Oct 70) 11. a refined board of an old galactic civilization. We applied Scn to it and found why it eventually failed. It lacked a couple of departments and that was enough to mess it all up. They lasted 80 trillion. (SH Spec 57, 6504CO6) Abbr. Org Bd, Org Board.
