The CEO of a large multinational company fell ill on a day when he had tickets to see a grand concert.
As a gesture of kindness, he gave the tickets to the company’s Efficiency Expert to enjoy the concert with his wife.
Next morning, the CEO was surprised to find a report on his table, written by their Efficiency Expert and this is what it said:
Thank you for sending me to the concert last evening with my wife. My observations are as follows:
The highlight of the evening was Schubert’s unfinished symphony. Although personally I think unfinished works should be disqualified, I did watch the performance and here are some, but not all, of the malfunctions I found:
1. The most obvious problem was that they had 22 violinists playing the exact same tune. Such reckless waste! I believe that at least 21 of them should be fired.
2. The drummer was doing nothing for long stretches of time. I would suggest he be put on a different clock, so we can keep an eye on him and only pay him when he actually does any work.
3. Many of the musical segments kept repeating themselves, and I fail to understand the point of having the flutes play the same segment as the oboes. If we can cut down on these repetitions, we can finish the symphony in 20 minutes instead of 2 hours.
4. Regarding the equipment: I noticed a horrible lack of standardization when it comes to musical instruments, and especially when it comes to string instruments. I’ve seen small ones, big ones, one you hold under your chin and some you hold between your legs. I think that one size for all these instruments will save time, money and confusion, as well as make maintenance easier.
5. The conductor, the most senior employee, did not play as much as a single tune the entire concert, and showed a complete lack of respect to the customers, while standing with his back (his back!) to the audience. There were even a few times he was threatening his staff with a stick, which should never be allowed. I would suspend him with no pay until we can get to the bottom of this. Psychological counselling may be advised.
To summarize: I am quite sure that if Mr. Schubert had avoided these issues, he would have managed to finish his work, instead of leaving us with an unfinished symphony!
Corporate Efficiency Enhance Expert…!!!😜
This is how a Professor explained Marketing Concepts to a class:
1. You see a Gorgeous Girl at a party.
You go up to her and say: “I am very rich. Marry me!” – That’s Direct Marketing.
2. You are at a party with a bunch of friends and see a Gorgeous Girl.
One of your friends goes upto her and pointing at you says: “He’s very rich. Marry him!” – That’s Advertising.
3. You are at a party and see a Gorgeous Girl.
She walks up to you and says: “You are very rich! Can I marry you?” – That’s Brand Recognition.
4. You see a Gorgeous Girl at a party.
You go upto her and say: “I am very rich. Marry me!” She gives you a nice hard slap on your face. – That’s Customer Feedback.
5. You see a Gorgeous Girl at a party.
You go upto her and say: “I am very rich. Marry me!” And she introduces you to her husband. – That’s Demand and Supply Gap.
6. You see a Gorgeous Girl at a party.
You go upto her and before you say: “I m rich, Marry me!”, your wife arrives. – That’s Restriction for Entering New Markets.
I hope Concepts are clear… Class is adjourned…….

How much salary will you take my boss?
After graduating as an engineer with first class and getting a decent job in a regional engineering company,
under tremendous pressure from my family to get married,
I went to meet this girl under the arranged marriage system.
It was my first such experience of meeting a girl in such conditions. And the girl rejected me outright on my face.
I of course moved on and got married to another girl a year later.
After 20 years, I saw the same beautiful lady at a traffic signal with her husband in a brand new Audi.
And I was trying to kick-start my two wheeler because the battery start was not working.
She looked out of the car and briefly looked at me but without any hint of recognition, moves her eyes away!
At that moment, after driving a two wheeler for over 25 years, first time in my life I realized the value of a helmet 😂😂😂
So always wear a helmet in your own safety!
Issues in public interest by a concerned citizen
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, “Can I also sit like you and do nothing?”
The eagle answered: “Sure, why not.”
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested.
All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit, and ate it.
Management Lesson – To be sitting doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.
