Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Exactly. Predictability is what you want in business, there are plenty of examples:

  • Anti-discrimination policies are fine with big corporations, as long as the rules are applied uniformly and fairly.
  • Project schedule and financial projections are acceptable if they tell a bad story, as long as the story is accurate.
  • Shipping time for many items (not fresh fruits and vegetables) is not important, as long as they get there when promised.
  • Delivering something early does not get you a reward, because it doesn't fit into the scheme of things: Where am I supposed to store that truckload of parts between now and when I need them???
