English term or phrase:the senior's head organization is body
The unfortunate default setting for most organizations is to do something quite different, which is to rely on what I call social engineering, where some senior person, *the senior's head organization is body;* the senior person, the senior group, the experts, figure it out. And then on the premise of some kind of continuity during the time in which you're going to supposedly solve a problem, and the assumption of cascading intention, namely that once you figure out the answer, you can get everybody to lay the train track and the trains will stay on the track, but that premise is deeply baked in to how organizations try to cope and be rational which, first of all, denies human nature and seriously under-utilizes the power of conflict.
