The Issue Is Within Our Management

The inner-mechanics of a city run smoothly when they have the right, qualified technicians doing the work and ensuring it is managed properly. This means that for every industry of work, there should be a management chain. One top supervisor, one manager per department, a couple of great admins, and one group of front-line staff per department. There is no need for a bloated middle-management. Instead, we need the simplicity and efficiency of a team who is properly trained to do their job. In an ideal world, less is more. We would spend less money to spend on hundreds of staff, [...]

Random Cuts Are Not The Answer

Edmonton Audit Report You have probably seen the most recent audit report by now, with the most recent recommendation to reduce costs by cutting management positions. I will be up front: I disagree with issuing a random number of job cuts without looking at the consequences; that is just plain reckless. By pursuing this motion, Council and Administration are only showing Edmontonians that they fail to understand how our corporation works and how the business of the city and its employees transact. In my opinion, right-sizing Administration is not about cutting jobs, but about getting the greatest value from the organization. [...]
