Apparently, some folks at my company like to reduce all messages to a mathematical equation.
Recently, our I.T. department announced its latest reorganization, and included a slide in the announcement that looked something like this:
Alignment x Energy x Focus = Success
My friends who work in the I.T. department are baffled by the reorganization — they’re not sure where they fit now — and are unimpressed by the equation. One said that the formula should also divide by Bureaucracy, then subtract Morale.
