The Bane of Sytems / Processes

I came across this picture in one of the forwarded messages in my inbox and it reminded me of situations employees find themselves in so often. 

To me, this picture depicts situations where companies burden themselves and their employees with cumbersome processes / tools for simple tasks. Don’t all of us agree that many of the organizations we work with have a little too much of systems / processes and tools? 10 forms for joining the organization, 20 for leaving. And between those two, a multitude of unwieldy processes to follow, forms to fill and redundant tools to use. We could do a lot with simplification – minimalistic organization structure design, minimalistic processes etc. But, how to make this a reality?
