When a company doesn’t operate under a strong set of principles or with clear leadership, it needs rules and policies to guide behaviors. In most cases, this is not the most effective way to get things done.
In fact, it often creates a tremendous amount of waste that hinders progress.

Creating a strong structure reduces the need for bureaucratic leadership.
