Rubber Walls and False Door Labyrinths

Reading Steffano Mazzocchhi's post on Rubber walls got me thinking about similar impediments to progress. While I like the metaphor of the rubber wall and can see the sort of people he's talking about its not something that rings true with my current experiences. Rather, I see what I call a labyrinth of false doors.

The labyrinth of false doors is an organization with many managers/leaders without the power to do anything. Each manager is a person you need to go through in order to make something happen but without the individual power to make any real changes. Some doors may initially appear to lead someplace but inevitably lead nowhere. The true labyrinth nature becomes more apparent once you've pass through a few door and think your making progress but find out you're just as lost as before.
