Default Re: Time to form a committee to investigate mismanagement by committees...!

I once was hired to facilitate a committee of association executive directors (the AIP and its member societies, Dien :-)) as they decided how to start transforming their publishing programs from paper to electronic formats (this was in the Dark Ages eight years ago). Then I was to develop a strategic action plan.

We spent three days at a great retreat center,and I often had to shout at them to talk one at a time - I even prevented a fist fight between two of these learned scholars!

The upshot was that a "plan" was too direct and action oriented, so we called it a "roadmap" and reconvened a year later to do it again!

But, the dinners and post meeting conversations were enjoyable, and it got me interested and up to speed on the then new field of electronic publishing. So bureaucracies can have a silver lining;-)
