It is hard to find someone actually in charge, who actually knows what they are doing, who are actually making strategic decisions, at the top of way too many organisations — including our governments.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying this is anyone’s fault. I am certainly not saying that I could do any better. It is however a disconcertingly familiar scenario.
Maybe it’s a sign of how fast moving and complex the world is becoming. Maybe it was always like this. Maybe our large, complex organisations will survive anyway.
Maybe they won’t.
