The smartest business people don't waste
time trying to wake up old corporations.

They do their best to get involved at the
innovative firms where they have a chance
to grow with the company.

>>His theory is that organizations customarily develop
mind-sets and processes that revolve around doing what
they already know. Once that pattern becomes
established, managers have great difficulty justifying
to others or even themselves the need to turn their
processes upside down to respond to a 
barely emergent market change. By the time the threat
is apparent, however, it's usually too late; upstart
companies have seized a substantial lead.<<

--Centralized and consolidated power tends to do that,
in business or any other field. It's the people on the
margins, the alert intuitives, who take advantage of
sudden opportunities who leap ahead. One thing about
people at the top of hierarchical systems, they tend
to develop tunnel vision and ignore information that
becomes crucial later on. As Jesus said, "Many who are
first will come last."
