"A reverse megaphone organization"

Imagine there is a big megaphone: a simple plastic, cone-shaped one, set vertically, large side up in the air. The megaphone is so large that humans can move inside of it. Starting a venture is like the founder being the goal keeper at the bottom, catching balls that keep on falling down into it. If he catches a ball, he can use the ball as a resource to enlarge his megaphone. If he misses a ball and lets it go through the hole in the bottom, he won't get a chance to reuse the ball to grow the megaphone.

Balls are sometimes thrown into the megaphone irregularly with some spins on them, or sometimes dirty with full of mud, or even with fire on them. It is totally a matter of the founder's decision to get or to neglect them. If he gets them, he would have resources to grow the company, and if he keeps on missing them, his company would go out of business.

As the founder decides to take on a player who plays above him, the player would be able to get balls, and he would be very happy. Stand plays are appreciated. If the player misses the ball, again, it would be the founder's responsibility whether to catch the ball or let it go through the hole in the bottom.

The more the megaphone grows, the more balls it would capture, and the founder would be able to ask more players to play above him catching balls. As more players get involved, the megaphone would enlarge faster, and the business growth would accelerate.

When the business is small, the founder has almost no choice to ask super-players to join, but he has to utilize the players he has. As the organization grows, the founder's responsibility would be to have those megaphones aligned as in the figure so that the business would grow even faster. The concept of having goal keepers, meaning the ones with more responsibilities, being at the bottoms of the smaller megaphones, is an important and useful mindset of the recipe for a strong and effective organization.

Pursuing recipes to create an ideal organization is my personal goal. I came to a conclusion that this mindset works very fine.
