In my post about slow hiring, everybody made tons of brilliant comments. Really. They did. And made me see that many companies suffer from these problems.
However, my favorite comment was from Dave Ferguson. He wrote:
I’m developing a Decision Duration Factor, in which the speed (and possibly wisdom) of a decision varies inversely with the number of levels involved in the decision.
Dave, I would like to say that you are correct and I will support your theory about wisdom. (I’m also so glad you posted a few comments, because I love your blog. Now, go update it.)
Man, I hate it when suddenly all these layers of leadership begin to assert themselves. The result is never good. Shut up and let those who know what they are doing do their jobs.
