Destroy an organization from within. A few hinders. February 2019

Many hinders organizations should avoid.

BEMA International was conceived to avoid these pitfalls at all costs.

CDS.  CEO BEMA International


·        Insist on doing everything through “channels.”  Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions.
·        Make “speeches.”  Talk as frequently as possible and at great length. Illustrate your “points” by long anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences.
·        When possible, refer all matters to committees, for “further study and consideration.”  Attempt to make the committee as large as possible — never less than five.
·        Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
·        Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions.
·        Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open the question of the advisability of that decision.
·        Advocate “caution.” Be “reasonable” and urge your fellow-conferees to be “reasonable” and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.
·        In making work assignments, always sign out the unimportant jobs first. See that important jobs are assigned to inefficient workers.
·        Insist on perfect work in relatively unimportant products; send back for refinishing those which have the least flaw.
·        To lower morale and with it, production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions.
·        Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.
·        Multiply the procedures and clearances involved in issuing instructions, pay checks, and so on. See that three people have to approve everything where one would do.
·        Work slowly.
·        Contrive as many interruptions to your work as you can.
·        Do your work poorly and blame it on bad tools, machinery, or equipment. Complain that these things are preventing you from doing your job right.
·        Never pass on your skill and experience to a new or less skillful worker.
