"We trained hard"

"We trained hard... but it seemed that everytime we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficency and demoralization."

Petronius Arbiter, 210 B.C.

Amazing how the quote seems to reflect today's management concepts, isn't it?
