The manager said to me, wistfully, "If it weren't for the people, this job would be perfect." He was responsible for the work of nine people.
The problem was, of course, that the people WERE the job. The process he was conducting did not exist without the nine people. The manager was superb as an individual user of the system, but not as a leader of the people.
This made for a tough place to work. A perfectionist in charge of people whose presence, in his mind, messed up his beloved process.
