This chapter concludes the Organizational Metaphors: Faith as Key to Functional Organizations book with a synopsis of each chapter in a high-level overview of moving from dysfunction to organizational convergence. The purpose of this book is to show how dysfunctional organizations with characteristics of germs, disease, zombies, and confusion can transform into fit, high-performing workplaces on mission with tools that address the entirety of the organizational body. It is our prayer that this book offers hope that a workplace struggling to survive may ultimately thrive with the proper diagnosis and prescription for spiritual maturity.
