Mis-Management?

A close friend recently shared this experience with me.

The CAT examination is conducted on the 3rd Sunday of every November for entrance into premier B-schools in India, such as the Indian Institutes of Management. The CAT application material is priced at INR 1100/- for general category students and at a hugely discounted price for non-general category students. This friend, who happens to belong to the general category, bought one such application only to find that several pages were chopped off at an angle. Another fellow sitting nearby had a copy of the application in which most of the pages were jumbled up, but thankfully no weirdly shaped pages.

All the management knowledge in this world and yet cannot get such a simple thing correct. Brilliant theory. Flawed practice.
