Interesting read: The Other Half of “Artists Ship”

I find the article very intriguing. So very true, and so very sad that it is so true.

I don’t want to think the fact that a previous company I worked for had seven levels of approval just to purchase a new computer monitor, or the fact that another company required ten signatures just to get any software pushed to production.

I am glad that my current employer fights such political nonsense, and that I as an employee can point out problems and suggest improvements to any check I feel might be a waste of time and money.
