Then, when the answers are needed most, it is too late.  While management was busy developing mindless risk management protocols and clumsy 9 step work flow approval processes the answers had drowned.  But instead of drowning under the rising tide of growth, they’d sunk below a hemorrhaging sea of red ink.
