The time for re-organization is soon here. Have you ever wondered why the major corporate reorgs are happening?

Typically there's a major change around Christmas and an adjustment in June.

To me they have always been a mystery, even if I sometimes am instrumental to bring them about.

Often reasons like simplification or effectivization are used.

For who I wonder.

I'm sure most of you still do the same thing now compared to last year.

And VP is still doing his/her stuff.

I suspect it's easier to reorganize than to explain what to do, because it buys time.

So having excluded the impossible only the probale remains.

It's Corporate BS.

Hmm, it goes back at least to the roman empire, this quote is often attributet to Gaius Petronius:

"We trained hard ... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization."
