Funny – but also telling. As a symptom of increasing failure to understand and work with the big picture. And extremely myopic. Talk about extreme myopic compartmentalisation!
Big business does it too. Departments do different things with opposing micro-goals; goals that are cumulatively detrimental to the business as a whole. The system seems to encourage and support this divisive behaviour with internal politicking, isolated reporting, targets and budgets.
Is this simply the way human nature works? Is this an inevitable organic behaviour that spontaneously emerges whenever a group of people gather together?
