I’ve worked within organizations that believed that more resources would solve problems or move important initiatives forward.
They were wrong because they igonored the fact that their systems were faulty or incomplete.
When the HOW of what people are doing doesn’t work well, or work at all, it doesn’t matter how many people – hard-working, smart and well-intentioned as they may be – you throw at a problem or project.
What’s needed is leadership.
Someone to look at results and ask hard questions about process.
Is what we doing the best we can do now, given the reality of our objectives?
Until, and unless, process errors, road-blocks and inefficiencies are remedied, more people won’t help.
Fix the system and then staff accordingly
