1. Put 400 bricks in a closed room.
2.
Put your new employees in the room and close the door.
3.
Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.

4. Then analyze the situation:

a. If they are counting the bricks put them in the Accounting
Department.
b. If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.
c.
If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put then
in Engineering.
d. If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put
them in Planning.
e. If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in
Operations.
f. If they are sleeping, put them in Security.
g. If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in
Information Technology.
h. If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.
i. If they say they have tried different combinations, they are
looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in Sales.
j. If they have already left for the day, put them in Marketing/Logistics.
k. If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning.
l. If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been
moved, congratulate them and put them in Top Management.

Finally
, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them in Government.

How about the final one changing to. "If they hide behind a previously built infrastructure, gloating while telling the rest of Africa how great they are and pulling massive salaries in their armani suits and fancy cars, when in actual fact the structure is eroding away around them and they have no idea. Then we put them in the current SA government.
