Model malaise


Someone read a book.

They saw a model.

Applied it exactly.

Not too much thought.

Shoe-horning what-it’s-like-around-here into a bad fit.

They presented it blind and rammed it down throats.

No one really bought in. (Not even the shoe-horner)

It distracted. It confused. It misled.

Malaise set in.

Skippy Strategy: Gather your team. Build your own model. Use a starter if you like, but no shoe-horning allowed. Trim for fine understanding and control.
