Re: Play the blame game

To play a kind of semi reverse devil's advocate, executive with huge ego (as they all have) takes job thinking "no problem, I can fix this place. all it needs is my amazing management skills", especially if their estimation of how much fixing needs to be done (after all man is a marketing specialist) is rather less than the rest of ours would be.

Then the true horror of the situation becomes apparent, and in particular the realisation that the organisation culture is so deep rooted as to be unfixable (the huge ego exec knows anything he can't fix no-one else can). So what are the choices? Especially if you see the whole sorry mess imploding? Just got to get out of there quick so that there will be another multi-million dollar pay check somewhere else.
