Re: his work there is done
I once worked at a local council, my first non-private sector job. We ran one IT section and when merged with another council proposals were put forward for how we'd work together - essentially merging the two departments, with us being the smaller one.
Surveys were sent to customers, our approval rating was over 80%, theirs was under 40%. Guess which way they opted to run the department? Yes the way the 40% one worked, all implemented by a temporary "head of service merger" who left about 3 weeks after the work was completed and before the first raft of complaints came in.
None of our department managers were given managerial roles in the merged department, none of our team leaders were team leaders, they were on protected salary and every one of them left within two years, the place is now mostly outsourced.
