Weekly Review (2019-12-01)

What I have done this week

I spent the entire week in Japan. It’s been 2 weeks since I came back to the country. I’ve never been in Japan for more than 15 consecutive days since I started the company. One of the reasons for the long stay was visa application — Myanmar, Switzerland, and India. Thankfully, the Myanmar visa application process has been normalized now. It’s been 7 years since I last obtained a Swiss visa, and since then, the rule has changed, making it a bit more complicated. I hope that everything will be alright. The new visa officer of the Indian Embassy came in, and the format of the required document also changed, asking me to obtain a document again from India. 3 days delay in the application.

Other thoughts

Organizations are an algorithm. Input/output are human, information, goods, and money. The algorithm is expected to optimize the input-output process. That is the organization design. Organizations are not machines; they are living organisms. Too many rules would make the process expensive. The best way should be to come up with the minimum protocols and let the people work independently. The design requires deep thinking.
