When Reality Sets In

The Americans and the Japanese decided to engage in a row boat race. Both
teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance levels. On the
big day they felt ready.

The Japanese team won by a mile. The American team was discouraged by the
loss. Morale sagged.

Corporate management decided that the reason for the crushing defeat had to
be found, so a consulting firm was hired to investigate the problem and
recommend corrective action:

The consultant's finding: The Japanese team had 8 people rowing and one
steering.
The American team had one person rowing and 8 people steering.

After a year of study and millions spent analyzing the problem, the
consultant firm concluded that too many people were steering and not enough
were rowing on the American team.

So as race day neared again the following year, the American team's
management structure was completely reorganized (sound familiar?)

The new structure: Four steering managers, three area steering supervisors,
and a new performance review system for the person rowing the boat, to
provide work incentive.

That year, the Japanese won by two miles! Humiliated, the American
corporation laid off the rower for poor performance and gave the managers a
bonus for discovering the problem!!!
