As I was writing the post Thinking differently about profit sharing, I am reminded of the Cheap Fast Good trinity where you can only choose two of the three.

Cheap and Fast – the quality will probably be wanting.
Fast and Good – and it’ll cost you.
Cheap and Good – come back in a month, or two.

I realised the assumption here is that you are operating under an ethical and legal framework. I think we need to add Ethical/Unethical to the mix thus:

In this new model, the first decision you make is whether you want to operate in an Ethical or Unethical framework. If you choose the Unethical path, you can just about do anything! In other words, if you want all of Cheap, Fast and Good – you gonna burn in hell! :)
