While discussing a new process with the manager of a different team, the question came up about whether a particular task should be done by his team, or by another.

Me: It would be quicker for your team if they just go to this URL and search, rather than sending an email with all the details to a different team.

Him: I'm trying to reduce the amount of admin work my guys do, so we'll get the other team to do it.

Hmm...

Because of course, typing up a whole email and waiting for the reponse is SO much quicker than a 5 second web search oneself. Geeeenious!

Who in gourds great name said this?

Of course, it would be much better if they did the search, and then sent the email and asked the other department to confirm. After all, if they do not do any admin tasks, then all of their work should be checked by someone who has a clue.

...but by introducing an email (paper) trail, they have somewhere to direct the blame AWAY from their team!!! "lovely deflection off the bat down leg stump", is what those cricket-loving imbeciles would be saying about that...
