When and why does too many cooks spoil the broth

This is because there is no common menu and no strategy on the cooking process.
Cooking is something that is very personal. Although one may follow a cookbook and recipe, there are just too many variations that cannot be put down in the formula.
The ingredients may be specified as “a pinch of salt”. A medium sized potato. The process may be to heat until smoke starts to appear, which depending on how hot the pan was, may either be too early or too late.
There is an analogy in project management. Sometimes it may be a good thing to have a flatter organization with peers who now when and what to do at the right time. More often than not, however, it needs a strong character, like the chief cook, who dictates and directs things and people to act in the sequence and timing that only he seem to know.

About Ed Simon

This is my user name as Editor of this blog. Some site visitors may already be acquainted with the different areas of my interest. I am uncertain how I should classify myself. I have lived studied and worked in Malaysia and in the UK for long periods. I have also travelled to many other countries for both work, pleasure, and just "wandering". I leave the postings to tell about my areas of work and interest, so as not to bore you with a lengthy (and probably embellished :-) recount of my triumphs and tribulations.
