The worst experiences I have had at work is when some pencil headed middle manager flunkie decides he is going to make himself look like a star by re-inventing the wheel. “Has anyone ever actually tried to run the company on square wheels? Well how can you dismiss the idea then? Mr. Filthie… I’m not sure I like your attitude…” So the company freight train, which was running at top speed on round wheels - now has to come to a complete stop, convert to square wheels, and then accelerate in the opposite direction at top speed.
And when they collide with another on-coming company train and the whole thing ends in wreckage and tears… it’s time for the corporate autopsy on the problem. And innocent scapegoats are sacrificed to absolve the guilty.
Our entire countries work like that now.
