Why Smart People Defend Bad Ideas Manifesto


Scott Berkun, author of The Art of Project Management, has released a manifesto at ChangeThis from one of his popular articles on Why Smart People Defend Bad Ideas:

Having spent many years working with smart people I’ve catalogued many of the ways this happens, and I have advice on what to do about it. I feel qualified to write this essay as I’m a recovering smart person myself and I’ve defended several very bad ideas. So if nothing else this essay serves as a kind of personal therapy session. However, I fully suspect you’ll get more than just entertainment value (“Look, Scott is more stupid than we thought!”) out of what I have to say on this topic.

Good read in a good format for weekend.
