The big picture reason why black holes occur in organizations is entropy–or a lack of syntropy. Entropy is a tendency toward disorder or randomness in an open system.
>For an organization to reach its goals, the forces of syntropy must overwhelm the forces of entropy, before entropy overwhelms the organization.
I use the term syntropy to describe the tendency of open systems to move towards greater order and wholeness.

>The opposite of entropy is syntropy, which Albrecht (2003) describes as the gain of energy that happens when there is intelligent integration of all the organization’s resources.
