Perhaps this morning’s post on mediocrity makes this seem appropriate today:

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Speaking of the 98%, this post about how business Insider came up with their list of top B-schools was quite interesting. As far as I can tell, only technology has roughly the same percentage of MBAs as the sector’s overall percentage fo the economy. MBAs largely seem to be clustered in finance and consulting (I presume management consulting).

    In our industry, we have a handful of MBAs. As far as I can tell, their primary purpose in life is to write memos to each other and reorganize themselves quarterly. They have the highest rate of staff turnover of any of the people in the organization, so they are rarely around long enough for us to see more than a couple of their memos. Those of us who actually do the work don’t even bother paying attention to the org charts that come out because they are usually obsolete before they get posted on our Intranet. We have never met most of the people on those org charts and, as far as we can tell, they rarely make a decision that impacts the work that we do.

    Easy Peasy when the world is organized to pick you up, put you back on your feet and dust you off for another run at the 2% solution. The old story of: Here hold my beer and watch this.
