    Advice to Management

    Forsake the "Princeton Way" in exchange for the "Professional Way" (a multitude of incompetence hides behind position authority and is excused by long-entrenched ways of operating known as the "Princeton Way." The "Princeton Way" is seen as a differentiator but in reality it is an excuse for not doing things professionally which means people do not have to learn how to do things professionally. They only have to learn how to do things "the Princeton Way.")
