The gross majority of the dialogue in an organization is about how, who and when, and the important what and why issues are left for strategy meetings and other "high-level" discussions. While understandable in the hectic pace of the workday, the shortage of these important what and why discussions reinforces a dangerous form of operational myopia, where the underlying and unspoken assumption is: If we simply get this done, we'll be better off as a firm.

Dental amalgam has been used for over 150 years to fill the voids caused by tooth decay in millions of people.
