Streamlining is one of the central—if ironic—functions of bureaucracy and its material forms. Bureaucracy is dedicated to developing standardized processes and procedures, which are intended to apply generally across multiple cases. In other words, bureaucracy exists to streamline systems by making them capable of applying to different cases. Yet, it is the case that bureaucratic systems evolve in ways that not only fails to streamline processes and procedures but come to obstruct them. One common response is to such obstructions is the development of new bureaucratic structures that will streamline older systems--and on and on and on.
