This is whats wrong today.
We have people given great responsibility to deliver important products who really have nothing to lose if they screw it all up.
When I managed a project, if it got screwed up I would be fired and leave with just my desk stuff No golden boots, no mega share options, no multi-millions to fall back on.I therefore, always delivered what was required, when it was required.
Instead we have uber-rich Dept. heads that have nothing to lose other than a bit of embarrassment (maybe).
So all they do is play the exec playboy lifestyle, creating their 'vision' or 'legacy'. No need to worry about what the CEO thinks as well "he's got to pay me $20 mill if he wants rid of me!"
License to w*nk about really.
