The acronym NIH stands for "Not Invented Here" and is used colloquially to describe a management philosophy that can risk stifling innovation and growth within an organization. Many who ascribe to the NIH philosophy defend their stubbornness with the attitude that no one knows their business, their members and their customers as well as they do. While that may be true, being closed-minded or metaphorically wearing "horse blinders" carries with it great risk to the success of both individuals and organizations as a whole.
GGA Partner and Principal Henry DeLozier combats the NIH philosophy by calling to attention the values of open-mindedness, professional mastery, and personal accountability posited by great thinkers distanced from the private club world.
