Their families and their possessions may be taken away from them, and their bodies destroyed, but their teachings, thoughts and works always live on.

Their design is robust and effective, preventing problems and facilitating rapid correction with minimum heartache and headache. 
Bad systems on the other hand lead to bottlenecks and paralysis, caused by too much centralising of work or a large lumbering bureaucracy.  
Centralising occurs when organisations and systems r…
