Sean calls me “King of Procedure” lately. Haha, since I happened to do some similar work before he did, so I had the chance to get to know about the procedure, forms blah blah first.
And when my wife and I went to see a movie this afternoon, we spent very long time waiting in the line in front of the box office. Their procedure took so long for different customers.
Then I brought up a question: what are the purposes of procedures?
The serious answers:
They are supposed to make things simple in every nodes, which would help the overall efficiency;
They are used to enforce company policy, making sure powers are porperly checked and accidental damages are controlled.
The funny ones:
They are used to scare the customers or colleagues away so that less workload is possible;
They are used to display real power, when powerful managers can always get things done while ignoring any procedure;
Well, it makes us not bother to think too much.
