Parable on competitiveness

Well, this parable on competitiveness found here has been around for many years. It makes interesting reading.

It reminds me of the time when as a Project Director of a very important project, I had to report to 10 individual executives and 3 internal committees, not to speak of reporting to the client.

Whenever there was any critical issue on the project, all the executives would give inconsistent and often conflicting decisions. It was also very difficult to get those 10 people on a single conference call.

One of the most frustrating stints that I had in that role.
