Glen Ford explains how Cargo Cults (imitation without understanding) are not only a danger in many facets of the industry, but can also be destructive when applied to changing how a company's culture works. He uses real life stories, observations and lessons learned to highlight the dangers and pitfalls of attempting to imitate others and give food for thought on building an original culture.
