Nimantha,

That is precisely what I had in mind here!

You always need Different/Contrarian Thoughts especially when your Company/Business is going through a rough phase.

In such a situation you need somebody who is willing to think outside the Box to make things happen differently.

I am sure you remember the Definition of Insanity-

"

Its doing the same Thing Over and Over and Over again and expecting Different results.

"

This is where Yes-Men Don't work.

@techforpeople: So you mean to say that you do need people who can challenge the management in operational issues is it ? I think it's a good move. Then the new ideas will pop-up in different ways.

Rich,

LOL!!!

My personal feeling is that they don't like Contrarian Thinkers in most Companies today(more like Yes-Men).

Any contrarian Thinker like the Speaker here tends to get the short-shrift.

Can supply chain be trusted too?

First supply chain should ask themselves how mush are they trustworthy for delivery of goods? (Even in ideal conditions).

Both sales and supply chain lacks in effort and they pretty much rationalize it with top management. And if they do not agree, they delay project more or reduce sales.

Isn't 'forecast accuracy' an oxymoron?

Information sharing between business partners can be useful, but the drive for innovation suffers when there is too much information.
