When will they learn that all management fads have a limited life! There are no "silver bullets" and no substitutes for good smart work. Worse yet is when some consultant tries to evangelize the workforce into believing in some "new religion" replete with its own rituals, icons, and Bibles. It's all intended to convince the masses that their attitudes about pay cuts, grueling schedules and idiot managers are wrongminded. God forbid (the real one)that anyone ever gets on the wrong side of one of these "prophets" by having an original thought or by daring to even question the doctrine. Remember the Spanish inquisition? What an insult to the intelligence of employees and good managers.

In fact, there is really only one thing that all successful organizations have in common - they are successful. Excerpted from "160 Degrees of Deviation: The Case for the Corporate Cynic."
