John Pourdehnad of the Ackoff Center for Advancement of Systems Approaches
(ACASA) steered me toward an article that he, Russ Ackoff and General Motors
strategist Vince Barraba wrote last year titled On Misdirecting Management
(PDF, republished here with permission).

The trio take management gurus such as Peters and Waterman, Stephen Covey,
Arie de Geus and Gary Hamel to task for coming up with quick-fix solutions
without doing statistically meaningful fundamental work. Read and enjoy.
