The keynote at our recent Self-Management Symposium was delivered in the form of an interview of Professor Isaac Getz of ESCP Europe Business School and Brian Carney of the Wall Street Journal, co-authors of the book Freedom, Inc.  One of the things they discuss in their book is "managing to the 3%".  They discussed it in the interview and, as I listened to them speak, it occurred to me that this may well be one of the most dangerous risks to organizations everywhere.
