A CEO of a software company was given a ticket for an opera. Since he was unable to go, he passed the invitation to the company’s Quality Assurance Manager.
The next morning, the CEO asked him how he enjoyed it, and he was handed a report, which read as follows:
For a considerable period, the oboe players had nothing to do. Their number should be reduced, and their work spread over the whole orchestra, thus avoiding peaks of inactivity. All twelve violins were playing identical notes. This seems unnecessary duplication, and the staff of this section should be drastically cut. If a large volume of sound is really required, this could be obtained through the use of an amplifier. Much effort was involved in playing the demi-semiquavers. This seems an excessive refinement, and it is recommended that all notes be rounded up to the nearest semiquaver. No useful purpose is served by repeating with horns the passage that has already been handled by the strings. If all such redundant passages were eliminated, the concert could be reduced from two hours to twenty minutes.
