KIng Arthur’s Court and Emperor’s Clothes

As a corporate budgeter, I learned decades ago that only a few people can look at an organization’s money, corporation’s money or someone else’s money and spend it as if it were their own money — i.e., very deliberately, based on the priorities and values of the organization.

One of my favorite memories from my time as a corporate planner occurred when an organization, which was not meeting budget, rented horses to ride on stage for an internal employee meeting. King Arthur lived again!
