Wouldn’t normally be quick to link mushrooms in Estonia and information governance/management.
But I was struck by today’s article about the steps people go to to avoid disclosing where their mushrooms patch is. Even to the point of implicitly insulting people (including close friends) who ask.
How do you keep secrets? Is it more important to keep the secret than it is to avoid insulting friends or your daughters? Is it jealousy? How do you deal with these realities in the workplace? Are these akin to trade secrets, which, if not adequately protected, are lost? Passed down through generations.
Food for thought.
