The title "Communication"reminded me of a story they used to quote while I was with GE.

While he was Chairman, Jack Welch used to host banquet dinners to employees who had completed more than 30 years of service in GE, and retired. At one such dinner, Jack was giving a speech, and noticed an elderly person having a conversation of his own, towards the last benches. Jack, wanting to have some fun with him, pointed to this elderly employee and asked him - "Hi, what do you think was the problem in what I was just telling?". The elderly employee, was smart, and though he hadn't heard a word of what Jack had just said, replied - "Communication, Jack, communication! Communication was the problem". Which was correct, Jack nodded.

So, everywhere communication is the problem, indeed.
