I believe that you have now asked the same, or very nearly the same question three times.  I have answered the other two, and will answer this one by referring you to one of the first answers (reference 1).

In addition, there is an excellent chapter in “The Encyclopedia of Management” on Organic Organizations referenced as follows:

"Organic Organizations." Encyclopedia of Management. Ed. Marilyn M. Helms. Gale Cengage, 2006. eNotes.com. 2006. 13 Oct, 2011 <http://www.enotes.com/management-encyclopedia/organic-organizations>

To re-iterate, the literature does not include the term “organic effect” with respect to business management/decision-making.  It does, however, include “organic organizations”.  These organizations recognize the constant changing nature of business activities and marketplaces, and require management that is highly adaptable.  This is in contrast to so-called “mechanistic” organizations that perceive the business as static, and management a simple vertical hierarchy of superior over subordinate.

Please refer to the above reference for a very well written and thorough explanation of the concept of organic organizations.
