So true Jim! So many hours spent arguing for a pay rise for an underpaid employee... turned down for a short-term savings that gets eaten up by recruiting costs instead. And I agree it's wasteful to throw more money at a high-paid employee, at least if the goal is increased motivation or innovation. Pay people fair market value and then work on culture and other means of motivation.

Power games can disrupt objective need assessments. Ideas that originate from staff experts instead of line managers frequently never win approval. Good plans require the right sponsors.
