“It turns out that everyday meltdowns—failed projects, bad hiring decisions, and even disastrous dinner parties—have a lot in common with oil spills and mountaineering accidents.”
Chris Clearfield, Meltdown: Why Our Systems Fail and What We Can Do About It

“In a complex system, we can’t go in to take a look at what’s happening in the belly of the beast. We need to rely on indirect indicators to assess most situations.”
