This chapter considers the mildly, moderately, and mostly shaded regions in the book’s framework for regionalizing organizations. The shaded regions are similar to the transparent region along any two of the three dimensions in the framework, but not all three. The chapter describes Any Baby Can and the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System as mildly shaded collectives. The Internal Revenue Service and Earth First! are characterized as moderately shaded organizations. Scientology and Nivarox-FAR are presented as mostly shaded collectives. For all three regions, socialization processes are examined.

Keywords:   Any Baby Can, Earth First, Internal Revenue Service, Nivarox-FAR, San Diego Metropolitan Transit System, Scientology, shaded organizations, socialization
