One week a few of us, being distinctly pissed off with our managers, picked up a passing reference to snakes and ladders and designed our own People's Network-o! board games. One colleague's design was suitably complex; the following provides a hnt of the complicated gavotte he came up with:
2: PN1 and paperwork sent elsewhere in the department. Miss a turn.
3: Management Group agree to discuss People's Network. Go to Square 7.
4: Management Group busy measuring shelves. Miss a turn.
5: Submit PN1 form late. Go to Square 7.
6: Produce workable budget spreadsheet. Go to square 10.
7: Management Group busy measuring shelves. Miss a turn.
8: Reconciling NOF requirements and Library Service policy. Miss a turn to try and find a policy.
9: Remove non-admissable match funding and secure network budget. Go to square 11.
10: Spreadsheet corrected by senior managers. Go back to square 9.
11: Budget figures still don't add up/ Go back to square 6.
And so on for 70 squares.
Another colleague produced a board of devastating economy:
1: Submit project proposal to management team. Go to square 2.
2: Go back to square 1.
