Can someone pen a counterpoint to this? I feel that one exists but I am not able to get it out. Basically, I see tonnes of assumptions in the above and that basically, it is almost all bad. Yet, there is something about it that must still be working: the company behind it continues to make billions. Why? How? Is there nothing to learn from that?
It is easy to make fun of large companies and their structures and yet Dalton himself probably wouldn't mind building a billion dollar empire with the similar type of "red tape".
More companies die of indigestion than from starvation.
