It’s nice to see a post in one area cross over to other subjects. Leo Babauta at Zen Habits writes about reducing bureaucracy. Leo makes clear that he isn’t using the term bureaucracy to mean only government bureaucracy, but I think all public administrators do need to remember these lessons as we go about our daily work. I don’t think we should ever get so complacent as to accept the status quo with no thought as to why our organization is doing x the way we are.
