Handy’s Frog Well and Truly Boiled.

Often referred to Charles Handy’s “boiled frog” metaphor – tell me I don’t have to explain it – and referred to it as hard-boiled already at the time I did my MBA dissertation in 1991.

Well Matt at WordPress picked-up this link that “debunks” it.

So what ? I say – metaphors don’t have to be true, just good.

(“A picture is worth ten thousand words” is a good – misunderstood – example, but people still get value from using it. Being good is better than being right.)
