Yep the last NABIT nation demonstrated that. All high level field officers were presenting from their mansion houses. Total disregard to their audience... Out of touch!

I don't usually post articles that require a WSJ subscription since their digital subscription is one of the most expensive out there ($40 a month). But, with this article, the headline says it all.

Musk is often called "the smartest man in the world". I heard him described that way yesterday for his decision to move his residence and much of his business from California to Texas.

Most M.B.A.'s think they know more than they do. Chris K. is the shinning example. He is phoney from top to bottom. He may be book smart but in most things he is an uneducated fool. In a very short time he caused total chaos in one of the worlds most respected companies. This was because he has no awareness of stable relationships in the business world. The BOD is responsible for putting him in the position and their handling of the Easterbrook termination was/is a disaster. "Fifty million dollars" Who do they think they are?

Chris K has a MBA.

Figures!

A classic case of someone being educated beyond their level of intelligence.
