Is business like science?

I can imagine Einstein, or perhaps Marie Curie, addressing a large group of passionate scientists.
Presenting a new theory to a thorny problem.
I can imagine everyone in the room feverishly taking notes.
Contemplating the implications of the new idea.
I can imagine the meeting ending and everyone excitedly rushing back to his or her office.
To examine their notes and test the hypothesis.
Funny, I can’t imagine the same thing happening at a business conference.
And that’s because most business people are not scientists.
People who are passionately working to solve a problem.
They’re politicians who are playing a social game of acceptance, power and status.
And that’s why the monomaniac on a mission disrupts the status quo time and time again.
Because she has no one to serve or to please but herself.
Her audience.
And her idea.
