Is a metaphor to describe a condition where the organization has been slimmed through downsizing to such an extent that its survival is threatened. It has become weak and unable to take new opportunities through a loss of skills and a demoralized workforce. The metaphor conjures the idea of a slow, downward decent into organizational ill-health and failure unless a radical intervention takes place.
