Key to Status: S = D/K. S is the status of a person in an organization, D is the number of doors he must open to perform his job, and K is the number of keys he carries. A higher number denotes higher status. Thus the janitor needs to open 20 doors and has 20 keys (S = 1), a secretary has to open two doors with one (S = 2), but the president never has to carry any keys since there is always someone around to open doors for him (with K=0 and a high D, his S reaches infinity).
