Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle & Tunnel Vision

tunnel vision

“In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle, also known as Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities asserting a fundamental limit to the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle, known as complementary variables, such as position x and momentum p, can be known simultaneously.”(Uncertainty Principle, 2015/09/30)

Hopefully that wasn’t too scary any opening gambit! My point is that I’ve seen some managers and leaders try to govern complex problems by measuring a small number of critical parameters. I think that data driven delivery is great, but I caution anything which could discourage thinking about the broadest problem to be solved.
