We live in a culture that’s been hijacked by the management consultant ethos. We want everything boiled down to a Power Point slide.

Risk management systems and controls may discourage or limit certain revenue-generating opportunities. Failure to ensure the independence of these functions from the revenue generators and risk takers has been shown to be dangerous, and this is something for which the board is accountable.

I worked for Union Pacific. I started out as a conductor at an intermodal switching facility outside of Salt Lake City.

Then it became no fun very quickly.

Water is ultimately a finite resource. With all finite resources, there is a continuous need for sustainable and equitable management, by capping demand, improving efficiencies in supply and developing substitutes.

Martin H. Fischer
My mom worked at McDonald’s, and she decided she wanted to make more money, so she got into the management program at McDonald’s. And that’s how you move up the chain.

That’s what stress management is about, that’s what psychotherapy is about, finding religion, or finding your loved one or your hobby – any of those, they give you more outlets, more of a sense of control, more of a sense of predictability, of social support. They give you the means to psychologically finesse ambiguous outside reality.
Here we have the Schengen agreement, and the truth is that for years we trusted each other and set border controls on the outer borders of the European Union.
