There is one good thing about stupidity and making simple things complex…..
It keeps one employed for a longer period.
Ask an average information worker what they do every day. They will have a perfect story to justify their existence. They may explain how they copy information from one spreadsheet to another—multi-tier unnecessary jargon.
Then ask why they do what they do? Of course, then, they may not have much to say.
When we implement Business systems, it makes all the unnecessary stuff very obvious. You will also hear a lot of noise from your staff about the new system.
As an executive, you must be able to filter the legitimate concerns from the rest. Remember, one is trying to extend their employment out of stupidity and making simple things complex. Figure that out!
