In management too: Nature abhors a vacuum

I enjoy gardening. If I prepare a plot of garden bed and then just leave it I can be sure that 6 months later it will be overgrown with something. Some opportunistically parasitic weed will colonise the bare soil.

So it seems to be in soft systems such as management. In a business where there is no designated manager or if the manager is a weak leader we seem to get results that nobody predicted.

If you are a person that is forced to deal with such a business then your safest bet is to pretend you don't see anything. And pretend that whoever you are dealing with really is as good and as important as they act.
