Accountability and Not Invented Here (NIH)

Steve when you split up was part of the reason because you wanted
a 3 step apology?

Well, I do remember thinking that, at the time, you couldn’t even get a 1 step apology!
So now what would you say about this in light of our understanding of Accountability?

I read a very interesting theory called Not Invented Here (NIH), Dan Ariely writes about it in his book The Upside of Irrationality or you can see more on it on Wikipedia where people, and organisations are more interested in and likely to adapt their own ideas rather than someone else’s, regardless of the quality.

But with regards Rethink Perfect it can work in my favour as RP seems to take NIH into account and forces me to continue to simplify the concept until even the NIH people will choose to adopt it.

Looks like I have a long way to go still to convert my ideas.
