So many of the bad feelings, misinformation, lack of communication, organisational problems, and frustrations seen here inRR, would be addressed if there were a clean sweep of the organisation, to better use and control the resources available. The inconsistencies seen in local interpretations of CMR directives is barking. The budget might be reduced, but it is there, some people are controlling it too tight and controlling it differently to other units, some people aren't relaying important information to Senior Ratings responsible for motivating and developing the troops. Business processes in place now were suitable 30 years ago, not now; duplication of data and its processing is horrendously inefficient. Let me light the wick; retain CAL, KA, VIV, FOR, EAG, SCO. Man them with 3 Senior Ratings as Permanent Staff, controlled directly by West Battery. Get a single modern information system administered centrally. And hey presto; tighter control, greatly reduced operating costs, better informed people, policies applied correctly and units operating consistently with each other. It might not be ideal, but it would be a start....... Status Quo should not be an option !
