If You're So Smart Why Aren't You …

If Drucker and Bennis and Collins and Peters and Co. (charter members of Guru Nation) are/were so damn smart-wise, why is corporate performance so shabby in general?

Just a [crappy] thought. (It came to mind when I took part in a Drucker tribute last week. “Ahead of his time” was a constant refrain—well, if you’re so far ahead of your time that few do anything with your stuff, then …)
