Survey the field of ignorance

The tsunami regulatory threat to business as usual is taking physical shape. I am not the only prophet muttering about the field of ignorance. While we all have tons of history about regime changes - a tyrant for a dictator, e.g., I have no precedent to reference for a cultural flip of corporate management from hierarchy to skunkworks based on external incentives. There will be plenty of indicators flowing out that will not point to the eventual outcome. The direct objective rational approach is the only marketing strategy certain to fail. The management services road is already littered with human debris. Either find the relevant social system history or use your professional judgment to reduce the field of ignorance.
