A short science fiction story
tells of a scientist who invented a tesseract and built it into
a house, which he then got trapped within. It seems that whichever
way he went he ended up back in the room from which he started.
He found that to escape he had to think about the situation in
a totally different and unconventional way.
To us, this
is analogous of management who tend to design their own operating
structures and then appear to become trapped within them - driven
by the very system that they themselves created. The 'Top-Box'
model is our proposal that they should lift themselves out of
their situations and look differently upon it.
