    Well done Neils. I write about schools that try and control complexity through limitation and separation. They keep things the same. The difference between complex organisation (what schools need to be) and complicated (what schools create by trying to avoid the complexity they need) is important. A much needed book on change and no change!

    Thank you for the feedback on the book Peter! I very much appreciate it.
    And your observations on schools are spot-on!

    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    Just starting your book, fascinating! FYI, the word manager goes back much further than FW Taylor; it comes from 'maneggiare', which applied mainly to the relationship between rider and horse (one of total control, literally via the reins of power).
