“This is the Nature of Management. Decisions are made, usually for good reasons, which turn into other decisions. So when problems arise – and they always do – disentangling them is not as simple as correcting the original error. Often, fining a solution is a multi-step endeavor. There is the problem you know you are trying to solve – think of that as an oak tree – and then there are all the other problems – think of these as saplings – that sprouted from the acorns that fell around it. And these problems remain after you cut the oak tree down.”
