Fix the problem, not the blame. It is far more productive, and less expensive, to figure out what to do to fix a problem that has come up than it is to waste time trying to decide whose fault it was.
Why is it we waste so much time when things go wrong trying to figure out who was wrong and so little time trying to fix what went wrong?
“Fix the problem, not the blame.” Is often attributed to Michael Crichton’s Rising Sun as an example of how much more advanced Japanese philosophies are over Americans. We are not convinced that it is a Japanese expression. It just makes sense!
