|STOP-WISE.BIZ Management by Statistics -- An essay by William Barwell, May 1995
Management by Statistics
This was one of the reasons for the utter and absolute collapse of Soviet style communism across Russia and East Europe.
Management by statistics. 5 year plans and the whole bit, managed from the top down. Nothing gets done, but you must reach your goal, make your stat? Two kinds of cheating. The out and out manipulation of the statistics and loss of quality control. The latter became the Russian trademark. Shoes that did not fit and fell apart quickly. Shoddy clothing, poorly made of inferior materials. Cars that were poorly built. Tractors that died in the field and were left where they were because you couldn't get parts anyway, and when you did they quickly broke. Bricks that crumbled because they were not fired properly, but they sent them on to make the stats. They all made their yearly stats.
Managers all over Russia found creative ways to make the monthly, yearly and 5 year plan stats and often double the stats expected.
But in reality, in Russia, even though 5 year plans were being made and statistical records broken all the time, nothing worked and there were shortages everywhere.
The whole gerryrigged system eventually ground to a screeching halt. Management by statistics does not work long term. It took 70 years for the entire system to finally reach utter deadlock and for the ideologists at the top to have their noses ground in the facts for a decade till they had to admit the sad truth of the matter.
If LRH management tech were ever to be used to run the planet, the same thing would eventually happen. For the same reasons. Management by statistics is not a good idea. The Communist party has shown us that.
Scientology is expanding. 8 million members.
The Vladimir Lenin Tractor works is proud to announce it has fulfilled its 5 year plan goals and built 130,000 tractors, 30,000 more than it's five year goal. All hail Lenin!
Been there, done that.
