Ladies & Gents, I'd like to start this thread by saying that this is only in relation to us STABs and the 'unique' environment in which we operate. We all know that the army can be a bit of a bureaucratic monster and that some people like their little power empires. However, at the end of the day, we should be about achieving a benefit. This (in my humble opinion) is even more important when it concerns those under your command. We also all know that at the end of the drill night or weekend, we all take off our nicely pressed greens and go back to civvy street. Some of us have jobs where we have little power and some of us have jobs where we're the bosses/those making things happen. This can often cause frustration when things don't appear to move at the speed they should. This is often compounded by the fact that the people you need to speak to aren't always at the TAC at the same time (including yourself) and our own part-time status. Now the question I pose is when is it OK to leapfrog certain people in your CoC because they aren't going quick enough/don't care/aren't competent enough to do anything in the first place? Should it be a case of if they haven't done anything in a month? Should it be a case of when you've chased them two or three times? What if the people who aren't doing anything are (heaven forbid) Regulars or NRPS? Is it a different set of criteria or does it change the scope entirely? Thoughts (or previously used examples)?
