Don’t feed the Tangle Monster.

The Tangle Monster loves it when:

  • No one owns or maintains processes.
  • Processes are difficult to find on a company intranet.
  • Documented processes are only seen as requirements for ISO9001 certification, not as business support tools.
  • Internal politics get in the way of effective working.
  • Management silos prevent effective handover between processes.
  • Information is difficult to find, ambiguous or imcomplete.
  • Inadequate and bureaucratic change controls prevent controlled process changes. Short term thinking.
  • Processes from acquisition companies are not effectively incorporated into the host organisation.
  • Complexity replaces simplicity.
