Re: Are you spying on us?
My engineering group (25 of us) recently spent an hour brainstorming nouns and adjectives in preparation for the development of a Mission Statement.
Well, not really so recently -- it was about 6 weeks ago. You see, company Management thought it was important for all the departments to have Mission Statements. To provide guidance and inspiration to the workers, presumably.
Well, we're a group of mechanical, electrical and software engineers. We specify and develop products for our clients. That's pretty much our mission. Some of us have been doing it for upwards of 20 years, and we're getting quite good at it.
Nevertheless, we're told that we need a Mission Statement. And something out of the many online generators won't do...I asked.
We came up with several large pieces of paper with nouns and adjectives stuck to them. But no Mission Statement. You see, that's too important a task to be left to the workers. It requires Management knowledge and skill. The director of the group, and her chosen advisors are working on it. Should be completed "shortly".
I'm not holding my breath.
(But, should it appear, I will post it here)
