Plan to policy

How shit happens....

When a new Plan was made at the top management level, it was - fairly enough -- decided to get feedback and comments on it from the entire organization, bottom-up. So the supervisors asked the shop-floor guys what they thought of it.

"It's a load of shit and it stinks!" the employees said.

And the Supervisors went unto their Department Heads and said "It's a Pail of Dung, and none may abide the Odor thereof." 

And the Department Heads went to their Managers, and said to them 

"It is a Container of Excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it." 

And the Managers went to their Director and said "It is a Vessel of Fertilizer, and none may abide its Strength." 

And the Director went to the Vice President and said "It contains that which aids Plant Growth, and it is very Strong." 

And the Vice President went to the Executive Vice President and said "It promotes Growth, and it is very Powerful." 

And the Executive Vice President went to the President and said "This Powerful New Plan will actively promote the Growth and Efficiency of the System." 

And the President looked at the Plan and saw that it was Good 

And the Plan became Policy.

This is how shit happens in the corporate world!
