I am reading a book Blue Ocean Strategy. There was this sentence in the book:
Placing the kingpins in a fishbowl greatly raises the stakes of inaction.
The problem with sentence is that everywhere in the book it is mentioned that it is a positive activity. But this particular sentence is completely opposite. What I have understood from the sentence is that placing the important people (kingpins) in a fishbowl (transparent meetings) increases the chances of inactivity. Help me if my interpreting it correctly. Below is the link to the paragraph.
