ACCIDENTAL GROUP

an arrangement of people who have continually stumbled upon one another enough to which they slowly end up grouped together as a whole. This informal grouping of persons would generally lack the goals, processes, and organization that a more formal group would employ.

ACCIDENTAL GROUP: "An example of an accidental group would be yourself and those people you run into at your morning coffee stop on a continual basis."
