Too Big? How to Tell and How to Get More Accountability by Bruce D. Thatcher is based on actual high-profile cases where accountability was either absent or inadequate and identifies accountability standards that should apply to everyone. The book is a shocking exposé that reveals corruption at the highest level. The author teaches us that accountability is an obligation to account for one’s acts and the acceptance of responsibility. Its absence enables powerful people and companies to become corrupt. The scope of responsibility, lack of control, business relationships, and communication are just a few of the contributing factors. Thatcher identifies accountability standards that should apply at all levels regardless of seniority. The book suggests many ways that companies can enforce accountability standards on all stakeholders.
Too Big? is long overdue. So many organizations could benefit from Bruce D. Thatcher’s knowledge and experience. The book includes pictures and references with information for further reading. I especially enjoyed learning about the history and corruption of representatives of The East India Company, Standard Oil Company, General Electric, Facebook, and the FBI. Each section provides the reader with questions to consider, so we can form our own opinions on these organizations and their behavior. This work is a real eye-opener for those of us who believe that what we are being told is the truth. I have now discovered that some people will do whatever it takes to enrich themselves. Thank you, Bruce, for making your readers more aware of what is happening in the world.
