Not sure if this is teh right place to post this question, but here goes.
I work in a very hierarchial organization, all of my reports have to go from me, to a sr planner to a manager to a director to a commisioner, with each person requesting edits be made along the way. Also in the process, others are involved who may request changes. At what point is it accpetable to say, no I won't make any more changes this is how the report is supposed to read?
Also, for other s that work in a hierarchial system, who makes teh edits. in today digital world, it makes little sense to me that people actually redline your work for minor revisons when it would be just as easy for them to make the chages they want. As an example, I was requested to write a memo for my commisioner, that he changed and changed and changed. it would have been easier and faster for the two of us to just have me rough out the facts/dates/concepts and let him fill in the meet and put the political spin on it. Instead, I wrote it, he editted it, I reworked it, he reeditted, it in some cases putting back in things he took out, then I reworked it. This went on for 5 hours, with him continually calling me over to rework sections.
