20th Century Management Consulting has become the go to option for one thing. Outsourcing. Here’s the thing about Outsourcing. It favours an approach called #balancesheeteconomics.
A zero-sum game. Where there are a few winners and lots of losers. If you live in the western world you will be all too familiar how this is playing out. The majority are losers.
The toxic political environment is no accident. It has been shaped by those who have used this strategy again and again, even in situations where it makes no economic sense. Yet, no one seems to be able to stop this slow motion crash.
And the ironic thing? When it comes to making big changes, Outsourcing is ineffective at best, and at worst it can backfire badly. By this time, those responsible will be long gone.
