Obsolete things

Offices:

<“… Companies now have mobile apps and e-commerce platforms for customers to order anytime, anywhere, instead of before the doors close at five o’clock at the brick-and-mortar shop of days gone by. Why can’t companies think the same way about their employees?“>

<She calls face time “a mirage, the symbolic appearance of working (going to meetings, chatting with co-workers) but not actually getting much done”.”>

Meetings:

<“The biggest study so far on meetings and productivity finds that most companies should eradicate them almost entirely.”>

Budgets:

<“Budgeting, as most corporations practice it, should be abolished.“>

But as Peter Drucker once remarked:

When a subject becomes totally obsolete, we make it a required course.

and:

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.
