..."imagine a group of workers cutting their way through the jungle with machetes. These producers are cutting through the undergrowth. The managers are behind them, sharpening the machetes, writing procedures, bringing in improved technology, setting up work schedules and compensation programs. The leader is the one who climbs to the top of the tallest tree, surveys the entire situation and decides, "Wrong jungle !"
