Although the new whip rules project has raised much dispute and emotion in the racing fraternity, most people who’ve worked in a large organisation, public or private, would barely have raised an eyebrow.  They recognise that all projects follow exactly the same six phases:

 

1 Enthusiasm

2 Disillusionment

3 Panic

4 Search for the guilty

5 Punishment of the innocent

6 Praise and honours for the non-participants

  1. We trained hard but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we were reorganized.
