Notes rationality"Men down the line often tend to judge the boss with unrealistic severity--to expect perfection from him, complete rationality, absolute efficiency. Yet a little observation tells us that business is not carried out in a rational way....Wastefulness, shortsighted policies, impulsive moves, excessive use of trial and error methods, strange personal quirks in high places--all this is normal in business." (p. 71)
