ABSTRACT
The author offers his thoughts on examples of reform in professions other than the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He thinks that the resistance by the U.S. Army leadership of the interwar period to spend time in school produced a cadre of mid-grade intelligence officers ready for rapid promotion. He claims that environmental change invalidated the expertise of institutions in the movie industry. He also observed that change in the way baseball teams acquired and retained players due to the free agency of players.
