In order to help you out,
This is analogous to what forms groups, social- psychological seen
A venue is a kind of formal group where within goals and a few
important rules are fixed, sometimes very strict.
The rules are considered to be connected with assignments of
duties and competence + the follow up of procedures, decision-
making amongst others. There will be more planning.
All of this has a predictive character.
Within such a venue certain rules are a given, there are certain
circumstances to be made under with it can and will function,
that is inducing performances upon human beings so that cer-
tain performances can and will be expected to ensure the con-
tinuance of the venue itself.
Within a formal group its members are taking the rules seriously
( untill a certain level is reached) and this becomes a very im- portant aspect of its function. The way of how such a group will end up is more predictable that way. Control is a necessity, but a piece of spontaneity is still avaible, creativity...
Two kinds of rules are playing at the bias, rules as a given and
those which occur on the spur of the moment.
