They sure do love to move the senior executives around. I guess that is one way to not take ownership of failures you set in motion.

Key to oil company upper management (a quadruple oxymoron) is outrunning your mistakes.
Come into a new unit — cut costs, trim budget and defer maintenance— and you’re the hero. Get promoted to higher level job on another continent. Voila, you outrun your mistakes and the poor slob who took your job is left to clean up the mess.
Same (not sane) at any big oil
@qiz+1g7y0tMK - agree with you. They just don't make meaningful changes, instead just recycle what has been done in the past...it is so common to see the slides that they use for their PPT is basically a recycle from previous work by someone else, but they just do a bit "touch-up" on the content....
One word: Tolu.
As if it wasn’t clear how bad UIS was managed, that’s a clear example how executives keep dodging accountability.
The management mantra is “accelerate faster than your next disaster.” The net result is that they don’t make meaningful changes out of fear of screwing anything up, and they move onto their next assignment before they can be held accountable for not doing anything. And since they all benefit from the management merry-go-round, they are all willing to take advantage of it rather than changing an obviously broken system.
Here at the O&A chemical plant plant in Beaumont it’s the mid management that they need to move. Also eliminate some of the made up positions that have been created throughout the years. There’s not that many people here that need all this supervision. Overtime not family is all that matters here.
