Week in Public Organizations, 3Aug2009


I’m surprised at the lack of blowback from American Apparel’s decision to sack its uglier employees.  Would there be more outrage if Wal-Mart did the same?

More al Qaeda orgporn, comprehensive climate and energy policy, improving intel, Wall Street and government, sprucing up around the store, and drugs.  These were some of the stories ripped from the headlines in the past week:

New information on al Qaeda org structure
Small green wins should lead to broader policy
CIA program investigation offers learning opportunity
Hanlon’s razor and the PBGC scandal
American Apparel to dismiss ugly employees
