A Rallying Cry (3)

From a recent speech, Secretary Gates observes:
The tendence of any big bureaucracy is to revert to business as usual at the first opportunity. 
He offers a prescription that should apply to every organization: "It's time that the Army's officer evaluations also consider input from peers and subordinates - the people hardest to fool by posturing, B.S. and flattery," Gates said. "A more merit-based, more individualized approach to officer evaluations could also do much to combat the risk-averse, zero-defect culture that can take over any large, hierarchical organization."
