Abstract

Although people and organizations know that world-class followership is not a means to achieving glory, surprisingly, many organizations and managers seem content to follow the lead of others when it comes to making key organizational decisions. One of the most pervasive and damaging follower afflictions which has increasingly infested corporate psychology and behavior is a disease known as Best Practicism.
