Outcome bias perhaps?

Channeling Taleb, The Knackered Hack decides that a company took a risk and it turned out badly, therefore management was stupid.
Speaking of Taleb, my opinion of him is split. He does have some interesting things to say. He is also an idiot (see here). Also, anyone who can put as the first things one sees on his homepage are a picture of himself and a quote about "teasing people who take themselves...too seriously", while telling us that he was afraid of airplanes and such because his ideas are so important for the world that he had to get his book finished before anything happened to him (and so on, see Mahalaobis for more), either needs to look in the mirror, or needs to stop staring at it.
