newsweek:

As the Erie Railway grew, so did the amount of data it had to wrangle: which superintendents were responsible for which set of tracks; schedule changes; who the various conductors, laborers and brakemen worked under.
As Caitlin Rosenthal writes over at McKinsey Quarterly, if any one data point was mismanaged it could bring dire results: “One delayed train, for example, could disrupt the progress of many others. And the stakes were high: with engines pulling cars in both directions along a single set of rails, schedule changes risked the deadly crashes that plagued 19th-century railroads.”

"When I moved here, I didn’t speak any English. I started out washing dishes. Then I moved up to prep. Then one day I asked the cook if I could help make the soup, and he said: ‘No, the recipes are in English.’ But I told him, ‘Just show me once, and you’ll never have to show me again.’ So that’s how I started cooking. Now I manage the kitchen. But if my workers ever need help with the dishes, I wash the dishes."
