    Allocating expenses properly to individual enterprises is an absolutely essential tool. That said, sometimes even really good data cannot over come the omnipotence of a paradigm.

    A friend of mine is involved in management at a large international agriculture company. He was tasked with rooting out the profit-eating problems related to the company’s freight division. This interest was due to the “obvious” problem of having to pay too much (internally) for freight. When he came back with the analysis and data, the President tossed it over his shoulder, laughed, and said,

    “I don’t believe the data!”

    My advice: Time to look for a new job.
