    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.
