It’s Not My Fault

Tom Peters has a great post about one of the major problems in the business world today.

My raw emotions erupted because of one sentence I had just read in USA Today:

"I do not accept personal responsibility for what happened."-Patricia Dunn, former Chairman, Hewlett-Packard, sworn testimony before the United States House of Representatives on 28 September 2006.

Sometimes I think people see career management as the discipline of never accepting responsibility for any problem.
