Information from unusual places

What if you get information from an unexpected source?  What’s that worth?

“Stanford’s Aid Whistleblower,” The Wall Street Journal, February 1, 2018 B5.  A second-year MBA student does a study of scholarship decisions and blows the whistle on his own school.  Based on information found on a shared drive.

The information is there.  Are you aware what it says?  What’s it worth to have that analysis before someone else does it?  Is this something that Stanford wished wasn’t found, eight years later, on a shared drive?

Is this post about the value of information or the value of managing who gets access to what?  Or something else?
