Up until now I thought you guys were kidding...Of course, it's a joke
(to be precise, satire, as Mike points out).  I had to go to a 2-day CI
course last week, and my mind wandered and that article sorta wrote
itself. - Beth
PS  Our HR manager is threatening us with "servant leadership" training
next.  Who knows what might come out after that.  If anyone has been
exposed to that particular new fad, can you contact me off-list?  I have
some serious concerns.  Thanks!

Well this is the wierdest thing I've seen since I last read The Onion.

Isn't Forbes Magazine something to do with finance, or business, or 
other capitalist activities? Why would the Oils hire a bunch of 
professionals to reunify them? What does Forbes have to do with this? 
Where the hell did you FIND this???
I sure hope it's a joke.  "Continuous improvement" is a term they've
around at the company I work for the last 12 years and it's basically
reducing our workforce from 7,000 to 1,000 while "improving" the bank
of the CEO and his cronies.  Seeing that term in relation to the Oils
is like seeing Keith Richards team up with the DEA.
