Progress Vs. The Illusion of Progress

We've all witnessed a re-org which succeeded. But here's a quote to explain the ones which didn't.

We trained hard—but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we were reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and what a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while actually producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.- Petronius Arbiter
