The A team

 When a company introduces A team or exclusive task force, there is only one thing on my mind. Something is terribly wrong with the structure of the organization. If the company doesn't empower the teams who work on projects and need to introduce an additional level just to make things work, then do you think this is motivating for the rest.

Most probably they will even stop trying to solve things, since they are not part of the A team.

This will open a vicious cycle of never ending management and never ending demotivated employees until the cost of running a project will far exceed the budget.

The moral is simple, don't duct tape the problem, but change the organization to accommodate complexity, introduce additional training to the employee and empower them in the first place to do their job right.

The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
