Last post you said, "It is rarely the case that a 'Right' employee works well for a 'Rich' boss."

This time around, you write, "Since the signature of a good engineer is to be a 'certainty' or 'right' type, it is critical that you hire engineering management that is 'clarity' or 'rich' type."

Does this mean that it's simply the fate of the world to have engineers fighting with their bosses?

You caught me Colin. And, yes, this is one reason that many engineering organizations are dysnfunctional, especially as they grow. Right people often don't respect the perspective of rich people, so engineers tend to not work well for people that are more focused on the bottom-line than the elegance of the solution. But I don't know that there is another way to do it.
