Has the drive for efficiency through cost cutting gone too far?

Has the drive for efficiency through cost cutting gone too far? | Business change | Scoop.it

The drive for efficiency has gone too far in my estimation.

“But efficiency is always good,” you might protest. True, productivity gains increase incremental profits all else equal.

But “all else equal” rarely holds true in practice. Therefore, like all good things pushed too far, gains from incremental efficiency initiatives may not be worth the price paid to secure them.
