Working for a big corporation, I have my fair share of suffering global policies.
The issue is that the command-and-control line is long broken. We are surrounded by "yes" people and by people following orders.
This is how wars are started and conflicts break out. Because the people from the bottom will ultimately pay the price.
Today my laptop stop working and the screen was blank, why?
Because someone decided it is a good policy for your screen to go to sleep after 1 minute of inactivity. Is this right? Do we really need to click and do something every second just to fulfil some CEO wrong ambition for "productivity"?
This is one example why big corporations don't necessary play well and compete well with others. Because instead on relying on the talant, they rely on broken policies.
