It is one of work life’s ironies that when attempting to reduce red tape governments and corporations are only comfortable doing this by unfurling more red tape. "Red tape," for those who live in a remote island paradise or are hotel heiresses and are unfamiliar with the term, is the derisive term to describe excessive regulation or rigid conformity to formal rules that is hinders or prevents action or decision-making.
So who do we call in when we need to cut red tape?? Apparently you bring in the lamely, and paradoxically named ‘Red Tape Champions.’ Where I work these so-called Champions have brought in new processes to make sure that we are not creating too many processes. The lack of logic makes my head hurt!
