Fast moving world of procrastination
When you have an involvement with the public sector after years in the real world of business it amazes you that people spend so long without a single decision being made. If you mention targets and/or deadlines, they simply avoid the subject or waffle.
I'm sure that there's a procrastination bubble that they all get inside for safety and don't hear or see outside of it. Couldn't have a cuppa once inside the bubble - no one would decide if they wanted sugar or not!
The same is true with all the magistrates ... they leave rooms to 'consider' EVERYTHING! Committees, equally indecisive and wet. Most just discuss things, wait until next month to discuss and ponder again and then agree they'll defer to the following month - repeat...and so on. So infuriating. Why can't we all have more of a CAN DO attitude?
