+ - Ask Slashdot: How can I convince my boss of the benefits of division of labour?

Submitted by 7-Vodka
7-Vodka (195504) writes "I work as an engineer for a multinational company. For two years my group was divided in half to focus on separate products. My group exploited division of labour by subdividing into smaller functional teams. This greatly improved our quality of work, output and morale. Meanwhile the other group flattened out, making everyone jack-of-all-trades and interchangeable. Now the other group is going to swallow us whole and intend to dismember our functional teams. How can I best analyze the situation to explain why having formal specialization was so beneficial to us?
Obviously, there's a limited time window to make my case. Do I need a crash course in economics and management?"

The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
