As Edgar Schein nicely put it, all groups and organisations, regardless of their size, must deal with two sets of problems:

“ To intervene is to enter into an ongoing system of relationship, to come between or among persons, groups, or objects for the purpose of helping them… A intervenor […] assists a System to become more effective in problem solving, decision making and decision implementation in such a way that the system can continue to be increasingly effective in these activities and have a decreasing need for the intervenor ”
