Beware Organizational Arsonists

An arsonist is someone who finds little things to pick on, to call attention to, and to question.  They start small  “fires” here and there requiring time and attention to put them out.  The fires they start are not part of continuous improvement, they are distractions and they divert resources away from the strategy and the important and urgent tasks.  Some organizations even appoint fire fighters to put out the fires caused by the arsonists.  You don’t need arsonists or fire fighters.
