Shared destiny yes or no
Does your company have a sense of shared destiny from the top on down?
So many of the nonmanagement people that I have talked to over the years do not feel that they have a shared company destiny with management. They can see by management lackluster attitudes towards providing production or services the best tools with which to do their jobs and that management is disengaged from the production or services side of the company. This is compounded by management constantly harping about wages, bonuses, costs, etc. while carving out a cushy work environment for themselves.
The divide between management and nonmanagement seems to be growing even with a growing knowledge base of fixes to learn from.
