Origami in a house aflame

Why your company’s actions seem counterproductive

I have this recurring vision of tech practitioners as skilled origami experts, trying to fold paper into clever and graceful swans while their house is fully engulfed in flames.

It doesn’t really matter that they are masters at their difficult and obscure craft because other issues obviate and destroy their good works.
