The curious unwillingness not only to analyse past (generally unexpected) successes but even many failures that cost dear. In general, a reluctance to treat as a problem an observation that what happened in a significant event and what was intended to happen did not coincide. Many of the implications of the lessons from this study emerged from an analysis of the problems that seemed left over and unresolved at the study’s formal end. This was done in the years that followed the completion of the original study, and what was learnt from these analyses (and added data from further work) also throws more light on the individual problem solver.

This means that we can learn whatever language we are taught (birds learn only added local variants to an entirely common, unlearnt ‘language’) but that if we are not taught a language we will not learn one at all (as Ridley also states, p. 95). The similarities of the underlying structures of different languages may be analogous to the underlying similarities of dance (pop, primitive, or ballet), as they all depend on the common structure of the legs and feet, hearing a beat, and coordinating movement and sound.

Being seen to understand this helps set up more trust and better rational discussion. Getting acceptance of the change from those who have to implement it, once it is agreed, takes time – if such implementation requires enthusiastic and intelligent action (delegation). In any complex task, people of different preferred style, level, experience, and position are often needed. If their diversity is to be well deployed they need to be won over and to work effectively together. Setting this up takes time, effort, and other resources; the pay-off is success.
