BRADBERRY: Managing the unexpected, or not ...


Niagara Gazette — As Superstorm Sandy, the looming so-called Financial Cliff, and the expansion of much needed health care benefits to at least some of the millions who currently have none will each demonstrate in their own ways; neither long-term climate forecasts, dire financial projections, nor the most sophisticated early warning systems available will do anything to avert a crisis if the warnings are not heeded and appropriate actions are not taken to avoid or mitigate the damages.

These are simple principles, not rocket science; they’re applicable to all kinds of organizational structures, including especially, local government as well as to individuals, myself included.

For me, I can say for sure: lesson learned.

For others, might I suggest a couple good books?
