Being unreasonable and having no options increases production. And production is regulated and monitored by statistics, the next level up on the Admin Scale.
Stats are best represented on graphs. A graph helps keep you unreasonable. The graph does not tell you that “it snowed” and therefore “things were difficult that day”. It doesn’t give you any “reasons”. It simply shows production or non-production. Products are a physical reality, and if you wish to manage with reality, you must have real information. Management survives to the degree that it has sufficient data to determine what is working so as to reinforce it–and what is not functioning well, so as to change that action or system. And the first type of information needed is not lengthy reports, but correct, condensed data: a stat.
A stat is:
The only sound measure of any production or any job or any activity.1
