Command and control is the new paradigm in Alberta.

Actually, it’s a very old paradigm. It has existed since forever. And that is where you command and control your workers. You command and control your auditors. You basically tell them what to do, and they have to adapt, submit and follow what you tell them.

My premise in this series of talks is that command and control is as much as a paradigm in the 19th century was for women dying in childbirth.

That it is an outdated paradigm that needs to be made to go away and become extinct.
