Do We Have Big Ideas Anymore?

That’s President Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir in 1903, when Roosevelt asked Muir to show him “the real Yosemite.” The two took a stagecoach by themselves into the wilderness. Camped under the stars. Talked about preservation.

And thought big thoughts.

And I wondered what big management thoughts we’ve had in the last 100 years. Yosemite big. 761,268 acres big like John Muir persuaded Teddy Roosevelt to set aside as a National Park big.

Where’s our John Muir of management? And where’s our Teddy Roosevelt?

It can’t all be tactics and little moves in management anymore, can it?
