Special K

19thMay. × ’09

One of my bosses was complaining about the lack of efficiency within our department. So that things don’t “fall through the cracks“,  we now have an updated process to help streamline our workflow. So instead of doing a task and emailing someone to let them know it’s finished. I now have to open a document, write in it that I’m about to start the task. Then whilst doing the job, I have to log back in, update how far into the job I am (as a percentage), before finally logging that I’ve finished the task.

In addition, I have to email the person who requested the task, then log back in and update that I sent an email and received a reply. This triggers an automated email to be sent to my inbox, that has a smiling frog that says “Great job on that great job!”

I can’t help think that things aren’t falling through the cracks at work, so much as after work, a lot of crack is falling through my manager.

The highlight was when my boss asked for any suggestions on ways to further enhance this already streamlined process. Mike suggested that we could save valuable office time by streamlining our corporate dialogue. Rather than typing “Okay“, we could increase productivity by simply typing “OK” I then pointed out that we could even take that ingenious concept, and further refine it so that we just write “K

Some people get to call their parents and proudly tell them they got a great new promotion. I get to call mine and tell them, that if I was a hot chick, my boss told me he would kiss me square on the mouth.
