Replying to LO12916 --

Peter Senge at one of the Systems Thinking Conferences said in essence ...
How long can we keep going for lean and mean when before too long we are
gaunt and dead? It always gets a chuckle from the managers who hear it
but it really isn't that funny....

And as he says, for now, the bean counters win. It is easy to measure
cuts, but just try to measure the customer you never had, or the creative
ideas the employees you don't have anymore never came up with.
