Apollo 13 is a great metaphor to throw at short-sighted managers who want cut-and-dried solutions to basic problems and employ script-droids as admins.

Like those who insisted the Shuttle launch "on-time or else"? Sad situation when managers can override engineers. Luckily for Apollo, it was the engineers in charge.
