Quiet voices and the Tesco horse

Lively and active internal social platforms enable an organisation's small quiet voices to be heard who otherwise get drowned in the noise and corporate bluster. When someone thinks "that's odd - not seen that before - I wonder what it means?" they can share it. Others can react. The organisation can become more self aware and self correct. 

I thought this during the banking crisis. Sub-prime mortgages happened because those thinking "Eh? Are you kidding?" never got heard. 

It's hard to believe that nobody in Tesco or their supply chain noticed the horse. Maybe if their small quiet voice had been heard...
