I heard (again) a great quote the other day that has been humoring me a bit and I thought I would share. So, next time you’re in a meeting where nobody is deciding anything and everyone wants everybody else to compromise, remember this nugget of wisdom:
"The camel is a horse designed by committee"
(attributed to Vogue magazine, July 1958, to Sir Alec Issigonis and also to University of Wisconsin philosophy professor Lester Hunt. See also Groupthink (negative) and The Wisdom of Crowds (positive). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_by_committee )
