All domains of human activity (including science, technology, academia, arts, law… everything) are now swamped by a majority of procedure-following people who are themselves cognitively unable to create – or even focus-upon, analyse and improve – procedures.
Yet these same procedure-following people are themselves called upon to create procedures!
That is, in other words, they are managers.
Yet they are cognitively incapable of managing; they cannot even understand what it is to manage – leave aside actualy do it!
Even-worse – since they are incapable of creating procedures but capable only of following procedures; they (unbelievably, but ubiquitously!) create procedures by committees and voting!
Add to this the post at OoL on A Train Conversation, which is a rewrite of the post last night here, and there emerges a poor picture of British so called “management”.
