Management by numbers

And it gets back to a common theme I've been on with regard to being treated as a person. The thing that bothers me about the timesheet method of management is that it treats me as a resource. Not a person. The timesheet reduces me to a number to be crunched into budget allocations and project management. And I think I find that fundamentally degrading.

Some things are starting change now about this; discussing more about social, about the persons but is a long way to go through yet.
Maybe in my life I would see this news; how companies, countries, economics blocks, world will carry out of their promises, forgetting the numbers to see the persons.
