    Are there any plans to record this interview? I’m not in New York and it sounds like it will be a great discussion.

    Great Article in the 1/15/12 New York Times. Too bad it flies in the face of today’s conventional managerial do nothing wisdom.
    Faust would have included pre-meetings for the warm-up meeting to review the last meeting that go on in just about every organization had he been around today.
    But, organizations are constructed to function around the premise of group/herd/boots on the gound think. Un-doing all of this will put the people running all of these meetings on the streets where they probably belong.

    When working in the corporate, I often had an image of top management as the three stooges. They never seemed to know where they wanted to go and they never listened to anyone nor attempted to find out what was actually going on in the company. In my minds eye, I could just see them running from one side of the room to the other in complete disorganization and disarray, being reactive instead of proactive. That’s why I love Dilbert so much. It’s so true and so funny.
