If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together

An old african proverb.  It is also written large on the walls of Johannesburg airport.  I think its a great proverb.  

A few of our “team work” obsessed corporations could learn from this.  True you need team work and an organisation to make far reaching changes but if you don’t want to get bogged down then sometimes you need to hand the work over to one person, or maybe a few people, to make some rapid progress and deliver an updated draft for the team to work on.
