Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

The corpocratic version of the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy is “SCOLs don’t ask what’s wrong, DICs don’t tell what’s wrong“. SCOLs, CGHs, BUTTs, and BOOGLs ensconced in self-images of infallibility don’t need to ask because they always know:

  • what’s wrong,
  • when it went wrong,
  • who’s “responsible” for the wrong.

Likewise, the aforementioned management team always knows how to fix what’s wrong by launching initiatives that “get the job done“. Of course, when you don’t ever establish a baseline or periodically evaluate post-launch progress, initiatives will always be successful and reinforce the image of infallibilty, no? The funny thing is, if SCOLs always know the what, why, and who of dysfunction, how come they didn’t prevent the dysfunction in the first place?
