Toxic Fungus

Unless due diligence is performed on the part of an org’s leadership junta/cabal/politburo, fragmentation of responsibility and unessential specialization can easily creep into “the system” – triggering a bloat in costs and increased operational rigidity. Like a toxic fungus, not only is it tough to prevent, it’s tough to eradicate. D’oh! I hate when that happens.

    methinks your graph is upside down.

      Nope, it’s just a “non-standard” way of graphing variables. Note that “0” is at the top and “>> 0” (greater than 0) is at the bottom of the Y scale. As time tics by, when fragmentation increases, flexibility goes down and operating costs go up. That is the Gospel according to pope BD00
