Remember “The Emperor’s New Clothes” story by Hans Christian Andersen? Two weavers promise to make the Emperor a suit of clothes invisible to people unfit or incompetent for their positions.

by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2010
They make us think we’re the problem. We produce work our managers assign and they throw it back. “Revise this,” they say. “What am I missing?” we ask. “It doesn’t quite address the issues,” they answer. “When it’s right, I’ll know it.” We go back to our desks deflated, believing that somehow we’re just not grasping things.
