Not a mechanism

There are people who think building an enterprise is JUST LIKE building a house or aircraft.  This is false.  This is misleading in a profound and pernicious way. I won't name names, because this seems to be the dominant view in some quarters.
Anyone who has tried to start or maintain and grow an enterprise can attest that there is no shop manual.  This is much more a matter of nurture than construction. 
This is really a key motivation for everything written on this site.  If people are making interventions into enterprises but don't understand the nature of the system that they are operating on, this is tantamount to malpractice, and this malpractice is rampant.
Just one man's opinion (and observation).
