Pray for Change

Social reform through business consultant management is laughable at first, but eventually grows tiring and weary to all involved, except, presumably, the consultant cashing in on our hard earned company paydirt.

All ideas are good ideas.

That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard, and proves itself wrong. A certain company took the liberty of letting its employees fill out surveys with answers to questions that rate your superior’s performance on a scale of 1 to 5, completely anonymous. The first one came back, and the president of said company did quite well. He’s a generally good guy (aside from all of the above mentioned consultant hooplah) who knows what he’s doing and it was reflected in his employees’ answers.

The vice president did not so well, with many answers in the 1.8/1.5 range, 1 being the lowest, and therefore all of the answers and data wasn’t made available to employees as was first to be the plan. When one employee questioned why the data wasn’t made available, he was told “Too much data can be damaging.” As though management is somehow intellectually superior to the common mortal factory line worker.

At many points in my life, I feel the need to look at things, both the extreme bad and the oh so, so so in life, and think to myself, “Hilarity ensues.” Today I believe we’ll go with “Exhaustion unfolds.”

Pray for change.
