Why Do I Have a Strawberry Slicer?

A strawberry slicer

(Or Why We should focus on principles-based training and governance instead of technical solutions.)

Once upon a time, someone gave me a strawberry slicer.  “A what?”  You ask?  

Strawberry slicer:  A hinged tool with blunt blades designed to cut small soft fruit into multiple pieces in one motion; the ultimate white elephant gift.  As opposed to the multi-purpose tool with a single sharp blade that can be manipulated in a chopping motion to cut soft fruit into whatever-sized pieces you desire.  Unlike the very versatile knife, it’s a single-purpose doohickey. Because I kind of know how to use a knife, that thing went straight to the bottom of the kitchen junk drawer, probably never to be used.  Because, who on earth needs a strawberry slicer when they have a knife?
