RE: I got fired today.
Hey, pm me your boss' name.

I just want to talk to him.

No....seriously, we're just gonna talk.




























Ok, I lied. I'm gonna kick King Douchebag directly in the balls. (or Queen Douchebag in the box. However the chips land...)

So many cats, so few good recipes.

A company that fires its best employee who's thinking outside their box of stupid? Yeah, that's corporate best practice right there.

GT, you have my sympathy and my respect.

I teach best practice so I gotta disagree with MD.
Inefficient processes cannot, by definition, be "best" practice.

In class, I often say (tongue in cheek) that operations staff are not paid to think, they are paid to do ... therefore you can never fire anyone for following a defined process.

On the other hand, you can fire someone for not following a process. I know many companies that have been hit by huge penalties and law suits for non-compliance.

However, best practice encourages continual improvement so if the process is shit then it should be highlighted by Ops and then improved (outside the Ops budget) but until it's improved, Ops should follow it.
Therefore, GT's excel process should have been looked at as a candidate for the new corporate "good" practice. Best practice is about encouraging innovation and often rewarding it.

Just sayin'

tee hee DLJ Wink

Me not know shit about corporate best practice - I'm just a peon. Also not sure if you saw my invisible sarcasm tag Tongue

All I do know is... why the fuck does no one say "hey btw we'll fire you if you keep doing that, you need to do things by the book, but that spreadsheet looks a hell of a lot better than our fucked up system"? Then at least give the man a chance to either explain why he should be allowed to skip the paper method, and change his wicked ways, rather than to just fire him. They're *wasting* a good resource.

And they're not gonna make their other employees happy firing for such a trivial thing - or maybe they are? Maybe everyone wants to just do things in a stupid way as long as they do their job and take home the pay check. Who cares if it's not efficient? And at least that disturbing guy who kept trying to change things has gone... Weeping
