Bolman and Deal(Bolman and Deal 1997), summarized the definition of symbols used with in an organization as the "internal glue, helping participants cope, find meaning and play their role without reading the wrong lines, upstaging the lead actors, or confusing tragedy with comedy."

Because of the "Organizational Big Bang" the informational revolution, the globalization of economies, the fall of " yesterdays' organizations, etc.) Organizations have been faced with the take of reframing their organizations in order to reduce the risk of failure. The task of reframing is not an easy task to accomplish but believes it offers a starting point and some helpful tips to areas to take a closer look at.
