There is a strong hint in all of this that some people prefer a

Fundamentally that is what fills me with the trepidation I mentioned
in my very first post on this thread.

I don't think traditional hierarchical management is a foregone conclusion
with strong vision statements.

No, it certainly isn't. And all I've been doing is expressing concern
about hierarchical organization creep resulting from such
proclamations becoming organizational dogma.

If the statements guide contributors and potential contributors along
the way that is all fine and good. If they become the justification
for stifling/impeding/whatever the work of folks who think outside
this box you define then I think it is bad.

Avoid that and I'm content. :)

A lot of producing something worth using is not about adding new bits. It's about taking away unnecessary bits.

I've found that saying 'no' is often a gain. If that's stifling, so be it.
