I believe management is already presssing for faster transformations. In
the field of government, the program has been for many years, do more with
less. Resources have been cut, so the new paradigm is do something with
nothing. That program was immediately followed by do more with nothing.

Management will not be able to handle the speeded up movement. Managment's
tendency is to govern - to keep speed stable. manageable. The rate of
change only need be good enough to keep them competitive and in business.
Anything faster is too fast.
