As I read through the summary of the seven principles highlighted in the Wright Way book I began thinking abouthow things seem to work today. I'll share my thoughts for anyone willing to listen. It appears the we normally avoid conflict at all cost until late in the game instead of making conflict constructive early on; we routinely tackle the easiest things first and leave the tough stuff for later, if ever (i.e. social security); we don't have time or take the time to tinker with things on a regular basis; we are fairly good at continuous learning as individuals, but not as institutions; we generally fire then aim, and our aim is not all that meticulous; while we talk teamwork, we generally work individually and then hope someone else picks up where we left off. I would appreciate reading others insight on this book and the principles highlighted within.
I, too, like this book. I have to admit...I was not really familiar with the Wright Brothers except for what I read in history books. This book really brings home the fact that they were exceptional problem solvers and that they were undeterred by previous failures and other naysayers. I am going to check this book out of the library!!!
