The Process and Methods engineer introduces problems where heretofore there were few: they, and their staff, redesign a business after the image of the method’s own insecurities — the product no longer dictates the form. Rather, the product is made to fall victim to nebulosity-by-design; it is remanded into the custody of the Process and Methods engineer, where it is ‘architected’ to death. There is a point at which adding complexity to production ceases to have the positive dithering effect it once had. Positive dithering effects — happy accidents — emerge when a product dictates process, and are effectively cancelled when complexity for its own sake becomes an overriding business imperative.
The tyrant has nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you. Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you? How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you?
