    Well put Andre - Project management, especially when working with cross functional teams, is like 'herding cats' and requires strong leadership skills to be effective. Thanks for pointing this out in your nicely written article.

    Enjoying the last 8 years of 'Defensive reasoning, therefore, helps us as individuals to keep our assumptions and beliefs private from others as we go about our daily activities.' ie - Blame Bush. (not that the guy is a saint - by any means or measure -but it is beyond time to Own your OWN Fail) ps - the housing mortgage crisis built upon unfunded fraction derivatives in toxic asset bundling never ended - they simply changed the name from 'Sub Prime' to 'Non-Prime" and have continued the exact same game.
