That's not the point...
Companies were originally set up to provide a service or a product.
With more than a handful of employees, all companies' admin depts become bureaucracies. And what kicks in then?
Yup, Pournelle's iron law of bureaucracy:-
Pournelle's Iron Law of Bureaucracy states that in any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people":
First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization. Examples are dedicated classroom teachers in an educational bureaucracy, many of the engineers and launch technicians and scientists at NASA, even some agricultural scientists and advisors in the former Soviet Union collective farming administration.
Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. Examples are many of the administrators in the education system, many professors of education, many teachers union officials, much of the NASA headquarters staff, etc.
The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.
Many of, if not most of, the second group will be of the beancounting persuasion - long term to them is 9-12 months, and they know the price of everything but the value of nothing.
Just to save a few shekels most of the would sell their own grannies to the Taliban - and they wouldn't even be able to comprehend what they're doing or have done.
