This post was written while I was working at Obergine and may have been inspired by a phone call with a client who discovered only after two days of working on a supplier list that they were collecting incorrect data, and so who had to go back and start again.

So why have both of these paradigm-shifting movements chosen the same focus?
The answer is simple: because it works.”
