Fellow folks,

I am in the process of researching a tongue-in-cheek look at management/leadership/organisational mishaps and misadventures. The tales that I am interested in is the things that people/organisations do that are practically the opposite of so-called “best practice”.

Names and organisations will be protected, but if you have anything to share about people and companies that’s made your jaw-drop or bang your head against the flip-chart, please share!
