In the computer world, we refer to installations that have not grown up to the reality of having grown out of their previous business model as being "run like a Ma & Pa shop". The reference is to a small, informal organization with poorly defined rules & roles. However, it is the appropriate model for a small shop - there is not the budget or time to hire specialists with precisely defined roles. Hence Ma & Pa will do whatever is necessary to keep the business running & profitable. But as the workload volume increases, there are foulups & confusions, thereby requiring the introduction of rules, staff & roles. Many shops don't transit this bridge well. Israel is a case in point. The loosey-goosey-let's-make-a-deal approach doesn't work anymore, because more formality is necessary, but also an understanding of how to work with rules, they are not religion, they need some flexibility, but not too much. Similarly, there is a need for accountability, auditing & transparency to the voters.
