This is a quick discussion of our ability to learn and improve from past events.  To have this discussion we are going to talk about the movie "The Big Short."  This is a movie that uses Jenga blocks to illustrate the complex adaptive. socio-technical failure that was the housing market in the United States.
Why would we care about a movie?  See if you can see the direct comparisons to systems, people, production, money, and power - and ask if we are also managing systems in which our ability to learn and improve is colored by other bias's.    Also, perhaps you look like Brad Pitt.  
Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make this podcast go.  You are the best!
