•Stuck in the PIT - One of my Unconstrained Thinking essays includes the commentary that "...it also feels like a bit of deja vu all over again. I was in Pittsburgh working with a client on their project management processes. They suffer from trying to do too much, just like Newark air space. There is pressure in these kinds of dysfunctional systems to make the most use of their resources, be they system engineers or runways. Maybe your company operates like this as well, striving to keep everyone busy in the belief that an idle resource is a significant waste."
Talk about deja vu...but with two minor modifications. This time it was a Cleveland client and the post 9/11 skies were clear sailing (at least at 6:20AM).
