My observation is that politicians waste a truck load of time, energy and money in so-called debate. The end result is often mediocrity (and more waste) because the eventual action is so watered down from the original proposal.
Why not test theories instead, have after-action reviews and then implement further?
In Australia right now there's "debate" about more tax cuts for companies with our Prime Minister and his side arguing such will lead to more investment and more jobs. This was the other major parties position too once. Of course now they are the alternative government and an election looms so they couldn't possibly agree with the government! Yes I'm sceptical of politics and increasingly becoming cynical.
How about in your business? Are you listening, testing and reflecting?
Who will you become?
What will you do next?
