Just in time

Imagine a world where we don’t put stop signs or traffic lights at dangerous intersections.

Instead, we provide training to all students entering high school, telling them where the dangerous intersections are, hoping they will remember when they first take the wheel a few years later.

Sounds ridiculous?

Yet, many companies train their new employees on antitrust or corruption risks months or years before these employees will attend a trade show or interact with a government customers. Wouldn’t it be better for the training to be provided just before every trade show or customer meeting – as if they were approaching a dangerous intersection?
