Posted on September 27th, 2017 by The Learning Factor

Ask the members of any team if they want to institute better processes, and be prepared for them to roll their eyes. “‘Better processes’ means ‘more bureaucracy,’” someone will mutter. But ask that same team how much they enjoy doing projects the hard way — duplicating efforts, scrambling to meet deadlines when someone drops the ball, or bearing the brunt of customer fury — and you can expect the floodgates to open.

Not surprisingly, leaders wanting to foster innovation and creativity are reluctant to institute such rigid controls and procedures.
