Lately I've had this strong urge to perform the way a small development team would, even inside of a larger organization. The problem with big organizations is that they tend to move glacially, and with a lot of red tape. Some businesses are better at getting around this than others, but it's a natural occurrence over time.
As more "process" is put in place, more barriers tend to come with it. The easiest way to spot red tape in an organization is to simply look at the CC field of an email. If you see managers, VPs, product owners, etc. in the CC field of an email sent to you, it probably means someone is pointing the finger at you and trying to cover their own ass. Sometimes, those kinds of emails are necessary, typically when the recipient is unresponsive. But when this happens for the vast majority of emails flying around, it's a good sign that you're missing out on a better culture.
The best way to test this at your company (if it's not already obvious, or if you're new) is to email someone directly - don't CC anyone. If it's a casual email that really doesn't require any other input, and then suddenly there are more people in your email thread with the response, you know that someone is either covering their ass or trying to prove their job's worth. In either case, it's silly and unnecessary. It's the biggest reason we all get way more work emails than we otherwise should.
