Hail the Decentralization "Warfighters"
Through every means possible, be hyper-aware of ICD (Inherent Centralist Drift).
Talk about it.
Fight about it.
Lose sleep over it.
Ensure that your Decentralists are as well armed as your Centralists.
(Hint: This ICD holds for a 1-person biz as well as for a 10,000-person biz. When you screw up in the 1-person biz, you add controls. A good idea, a necessary one ... until it stifles creativity.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
