Blind men and the Elephant

While reading the blog Thinking Faster I happened upon a reference to some blind men and an elephant that just didn't ring any bells.

...learning only the information that I think is important really is like the blind men describing the elephant.

Some searching turned up this funny poem that tells the source parable. Now that I've read the whole thing, I know I've heard it before. It's a good story and one very applicable to the issues of working on a team. Hopefully blogging about it will help me do a better job remembering it this time.
