Burnout? LO6181

I have been following the discussions on change, square wheels and
organizational restructuring with great interest - thought the following
comment from a health care worker should be shared - "I was disciplined,
but am now program-based and have been matrix managed through
restructuring and reorganization to become an integrated community-based
service. I am now part of a team that has been rebuilt by Total Quality
Management to be reformed for devolution to be transferred or merged to
district boards with coterminous boundaries that are amalgamated or
affiliated. I have had input through the collaborative and consultative
process in a family friendly workplace"

If someone came along who had never heard of TQM or LO would that person
have the slightest clue what this health care worker was talking about? -
