Disadvantages of Procedures

1) Procedures tend to inhibit rational and logical thinking. The assumptions in the basis of which a procedure was designed might not obtain in all circumstances. In that instance, the subordinate could devise a more suitable approach in solving a given problem. Procedures encourage a robot approach to problem solving and this is not consistent with the need for thought and creativity.

2) Procedures frustrate clients sometimes. In the large organization, procedures even for minor activities like interviews with an executive are seen by those affected as obstacles. In this way, procedures defeat the very purpose of time-saving, economy and improvement of the image of the organization.

3) In circumstances requiring prompt action, adherence to procedure can have a negative effect on the organization's objective. Situations might arise when an advantageous purchase of inputs has to be made to relieve a shortage. If the standard tender procedure is to be insisted on, the opportunity might be lost.
