Replying to LO29552 --

By definition, organizational failure is a failure to learn. It's
relatively easy for us with 20/20 hindsight to see first the organizations
that died and then note where they went wrong. The challenge is to tease
out those principles from the past that help us steer more wisely into the
unknown future.

It isn't easy. Peters and Waterman found good companies and set out good
principles in "In Search of Excellence," and time and events proved them
