  • The word 'Synergistic' is used to explain the effect of 'synergy' created within groups, teams, associations like family units and so on, where the group's focus is a 'collective' one, with a collective vision rather than pursuing individual vested interests! Hence the group's output is "more than" the the output derived by summing up each of the 'individual' units of the group! The creation of 'synergies' or the so-called 'synergistic' functioning denotes how each member of the group or constituent of a single unit reaches out to the others within it, contributing to such enhanced output! This is apparent within groups working for an organization towards 'organizational' goals, with none planning to take personal credit when it comes to success, yet each one ready to reflect on his/her individual failure when it comes to analyzing the final outcome - success or failure, as the case may be; for, it is the 'organizational' goals that matter most! Also, an example that can be portrayed is that of a typical 'Indian' wedding where, the familiy unit's ultimate goal is to get the 'daughter' of the house wedded and "seen off on her trip" to her new marital home! Here, without egos or heirarchies or any personal goals in focus, the family strives to achieve the final outcome, yes, synergistically! Hope that explains! Best!
