| Bureaucracy 1

Any system of management that becomes infested with bureaucratic form-filling, policies and procedures, officialese, acronyms and buzz words, will cause the channels in the system to become clogged with paper (both physical and electronic). Efficiency becomes reduced, as more and more time is taken up by paperwork. Frustration grows amongst staff, as simple solutions and common sense are left behind because minds are filled with too much information that can often be lengthy and obtuse. The result is that the divide between management and staff grows larger. Finally, many forms of bureaucracy are cancer-like in their operation, that is, they tend to keep growing unless they are checked. Unfortunately, most bureaucracy is rarely checked against practical, user-friendly applications.
