Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )
A demonstration of my not considerable cartooning skills but it makes the point probably better than I can do with words. The world in general and the UK in particular has a peculiar belief that you can have something for nothing.

In particular, many people who should know better believe that you can produce a competent IT engineering manager without any need for them to understand something as obviously tedious and menial as engineering.

Instead we teach them gravitas, governance, stakeholder-speak and all sorts of bollocks; anything in fact so long as its nothing to do with actually how to build the damn things properly.

Learning about how things actually work seems to have become dangerously unfashionable. It is much better just to talk about them and then move on quick so they collapse around somebody else's ears.
