Other Names: Disadvantages of success
Nature: Success has been the downfall of many good organizations. Organizations run the risk of being turned into "models" which leads to a waste of valuable resources on image maintenance, peer training etc. Success can distort the original objectives of the organization and lead to rapid and uncontrolled growth. The illusion of success can lead groups to overestimate their own strength and promise more than they can realistically achieve. Leaders who become celebrities tend to replace people rather than represent them. Members drift away once the leadership appears more concerned with its own image than with concrete gains for its constituency.
