An idiot in Finland – the ethics of internal cooperation
A phone conversation, speeks the director of division in Poland, Magdalena M. :
Do you know this O., the inverter guy? Well, listen, it went like that: last week Krzysiek P, after getting in touch with a company that is carrying out the investment in Kostrzyn, yeah? They are assembling, setting up a new … machine. So he got some inquiries from that company for the products, an that inquiry a certain Bartłomiej O. sent to Finland, because that’s where the center … is, with a note: Hey guys, is it ok if we send an offer responding to this inquiry? If you don’t feel ok with it, don’t worry, we won’t send it.
Do you get it? He goes and asks some idiot in Finland if we’re allowed to send an offer! And he calls himself a sales director?! And our pal, CEO, is wondering why we do so weak on the polish market.
Is it a standard procedure in Finland to ask permission from “some idiot” to send an offer?
Is there and if so – where can be found the list of idiots in Finland with such authority?
I sent this letter to the Embassy of Finland:
Embassy of Finland in Poland
Dear Sir or Madam,
I’m an ex-employee of ABB company. I am writing to you beacuse since few years I’ve been trying to get some information about doubts I had when I spoke to the director of polish division Magdalena M. of which I describe on my blog mabbing.com
I have the questions:
Is it a standard procedure in Finland to ask an idiots for a permission to send an offer, and if so – which laws regulate it or is it an internal procedure in ABB?
Is there and if so – where can be found the list of idiots in Finland with such authority (if any authority is needed) to grant such permissions?
Could I ask you to send me such list and provide updates for it in future?
Thank you in advance for your kind reply.
