Uh, oh…

Business is usually in a huge reactive mode, which is why there is so little innovation in most places. For example, how many major businesses do you suspect right now are doing a hasty forensic audit of their top executives’ pay and taxes after the Ghosn scandal and arrest? How many universities are scrambling to investigate claims they ignored after the Dartmouth abuse has now been made public?

Preventive action is always more effective than contingent action, and while we should always honor the firefighters, we also should also respect the fire marshals who check the wiring first.
