Listen and Learn

As Jeff Smith states, there are lessons to be learned. While the terminology is not the same, the concepts are.

I think an interesting idea would be to listen and learn from the inmates. They are humans - people who have made bad choices - but it doesn't mean they are bad people.

A&E has a show called "Scared Straight" which brings youth into the prisions to scare them out of getting in trouble. While I hope some youth get scared, in reality, I am not sure if others get anything out of it.

Along those lines, learning from the prisoners could be an interesting approach to business.

How do they approach finance? How do they deal with staffing/resource challenges?
