This won't be groundbreaking or anything but it is just a comment about how companies, especially large companies tend to put people in boxes, especially at larger companies. Companies put people in these boxes, train them for these boxes, and then appraise them only for what they do inside of their box. These boxes tend to be incredibly small and well defined because people often move onto another company or box every 3-4 years. This creates an entire workforce that has been trained, promoted, and assessed for a small number of small boxes. So, instead of someone moving up that well rounded and capable of improvising, you have someone that has made a career of staying in their box and never risking making a mistake. It is like comparing jazz being played Miles Davis to an 11th grader playing off of sheet music or telling Miles Davis to quit improvising and stick to what's on the sheet. It almost feels like the intent is to manage and create an uninspired, disposable, mediocre, and replacable workforce.
