Business Is Mental (B)

The ABC’s They Didn’t Teach You at Muncie College of Business Administration*

*But might be teaching you now if this is a textbook for a class you’re currently taking at Muncie College of Business Administration.

B Is for Bottleneck

The Bottleneck is not only the strongest part of the bottle, it is the most powerful because everything must go past the bottleneck and the bottleneck slows things down. The bottleneck cannot stop things from leaving or keep things out. That’s the job of the bottle cap, which is not technically part of the bottle, so the bottleneck is still the most powerful part of the bottle.

Think about it: Who are the bottle caps, bottlenecks, and bottle bodies in your organization? Be a bottleneck, not a bottle cap, which is not technically part of the bottle anyway.
