Column A and Column B
When looking at a problem, part of the solution process is looking at what caused it in the first place. How did we get here? Why did we get here? How do we not get here again? In many larger organisations, identifying a single point of failure in people or policy is almost impossible. There are so many cooks in the kitchen it is difficult to say.
The finger pointing becomes even worse when committees are involved. I do love the saying that if a horse was designed by a committee a camel is the result. If you were after a camel, great. If you were after a horse, perhaps not so much. This thought never failed to make me smile whenever I saw the Land 121 Project Overlander logo of a camel . . . but I digress.
