From the Paper:

"Checks and balances in an organization are affected by policies and regulations or physical restraints. Most members of an organization develop negative an attitude towards these checks and balances and the enforcers of such measures. The most probable reason for this could be the impractical nature of such restraints. In a successful organization, such measures are the ones developed with consultation from all the members of the organization. It should not be biased or the members feel as if it was imposed on them. They should feel some sense of ownership on these rules."
