Lusitania And Nothing Learned, 1915 to 2009

January 5, 2010

Over the Christmas period I read David Ramsay’s research on the World War 1 sinking of the Lusitania.

Yes the book was good, and a very easy, clear text to read. But I am not going to writing here about a ship Lusitaniasinking in a war zone.

In Mr. Ramsay’s research on some of the issues and incidents that led to the sinking he identified two things which struck me from a leadership perspective. Don’t tell me you have never seen;

*Leadership providing vague, even contradictory instructions

*Things grind to a halt when the senior leadership is absent

Could have been written about events today ….
