YouTube - The Process

YouTube - The Process

A friend of mine sent this to me.  It's very funny -but I believe it will resonate as uncomfortably accurate with anyone who has ever been at the effect of an awful corporate task force process. Situations like this -- where the end product gets gradually worsened by committee -- are awful to watch and worse to be a part of. It's like participating in a slow-motion train wreck.


This parody is such a great example of what happens when people 1) lose sight of the actual problem they're trying to solve and 2) start focusing on their own enhancement or advancement vs. the greater good.  

It's also a great cautionary tale for consultants: Note to self - if the client starts telling you to do things you KNOW are going to yield a bad outcome...speak up!
