    [Organization] Living Social, Groupon, and The Like – Are These Group Deals Really a Good Deal for Your Organization?
    Think about the goals and immediate needs of your organization. Group deals may be a good deal for your organization as well. I love a good deal. I often peruse Living Social, Groupon, and several other local sites looking for steals. But are these sites really good for the businesses using them? I believe the issue lies in the recurring themes of available deals. For instance, discounted massages are always available on these sites, changing the market value of these services.

Too bad the metaphor doesn’t go both ways, because then organic and fair trade food would be free, too.

So here we are in organizations whose management has been based in machine thinking for 50 years, so I’m not surprised we’re having agility issues.
