The Avengers -- Governance Gone Wrong

It has been almost a month since I wrote my "Does Your Team Look Like The Avengers" blog post and I am still stuck on this movie! You might ask, "Erin, why can't you let it go already?"  Well, it IS a doggone good movie.  But it's also because I realized that there are yet more lessons to be learned from The Avengers.  It almost makes me believe that the screenplay writers were paid…

For those that missed the show, there was a…

Posted on February 3, 2011 at 3:22pm 1 Comment

If you were like me, on January 25 you sat glued to your television for over an hour watching President Barack Obama deliver his second state of the union (SOTU) address. What is abundantly clear after hearing his address is that it will take more than ideological compromises in Congress to win the future for the world’s largest democracy. Aligning vision and strategy across the behemoth known as federal government bureaucracy is difficult at best. Realigning government structures so that…
