“In early Greek society, particularly in Athens, democracy meant the equivalent of a permanent town meeting—all decisions of consequence were made in public assembly. As many professional service firms have rediscovered, this view of democracy tends to result in much wasting of time, slowness of response, and extreme conservatism in action.”
David H. Maister, Managing The Professional Service Firm

“There are dangers in this model of succumbing to “committee-itis.” If too many people are jointly responsible for the execution of firm business, the chances that implementation will be deferred increase exponentially.”
David H. Maister, Managing The Professional Service Firm
