Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth
Divided responsibility is no responsibility as nobody bothers about the job. The result is that either the work is not done or completed or the quality becomes a first casualty. One person responsible for doing a job will do it better than if there were many persons to do it. Simple reason is that he is responsible and answerable to his master for his good or bad work. He can’t blame others for any lapse. In a kitchen many cooks preparing the broth or any dish will not finish the job satisfactorily. One cook will churn out a perfect dish because he knows that he will be held responsible for any lapse or defect. A joint venture having many partners often crumbles down and fails. Any partner can show slackness because he is already assured of his share in the profit. No partner works consistently. Public undertakings incur heavy losses because responsibility is divided here. Any country ruled by a group of 11 political parties can’t boast of administration of a high standard. In a family if different members are free to take decisions, there would be frequent quarrels. One strong head is indispensable for efficient and effective working of any enterprise. Nature is wise enough that it has not created two brains in a single man. One brain governs the body nicely and efficiently. Accountability is a must for proper functioning and for that undivided responsibility is the only criterion.
