During our former examinations we demonstrated a breast-wheel lifecycle model [1] for SME’s. By the help of our lifecycle model we purpose to give a hand for the SMEs to compass how to handle and coordinate the general growth of their lifecycle.
Purpose of this paper is to give way to such issues in connection with the bureaucratic behaviors or interventions of an SME, which could be either foreshadowing progress or even retroactive by the day-by-day life of a company. We would like to explain, when the bureaucratic attitude of mind puts in an appearance at first by an SME from our point of view. Some other lifecycle models regard the presence of a bureaucratic period as decadence of the company on the lifecycle, but should be actually all of the bureaucratese proceedings naysayer?
In the paper, we introduced some real example from a Hungarian medium-sized company’s life, where the decision makers adopted some bureaucratic elements by the leading procedures. Was it worthwhile?
