Re: I think
The reason it's the same across the board is because manglements aren't taught the basics Boris explained.
Back in the days when I was still a not particularly humble employee we had one of those programmes where individuals form across the business were gathered together in groups to be "motivated" by senior managers. The senior manager in my group was going on about quality being delivered quickly and cheap. Not being particularly humble at speaking up I had no compunction about explaining the Iron Triangle to him in front of the group - all the rest probably knew it anyway. Even if, as it happened, he was the director of my part of the corporation. After all I couldn't leave my oppos with the impression that that was the standard of knowledge there.
