The Management Myth

The Management Myth | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
What they don’t seem to teach you in business school is that “the five forces” and “the seven Cs” and every other generic framework for problem solving are heuristics: they can lead you to solutions, but they cannot make you think. Case studies may provide an effective way to think business problems through, but the point is rather lost if students come away imagining that you can go home once you’ve put all of your eggs into a two-by-two growth-share matrix.

David Hain's insight:

Most of #management theory is inane, writes founder, consulting firm. To succeed in business, don’t get an M.B.A. Study philosophy instead!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 6, 10:49 AM

Management is about combining leading and management together. Peter Vaill wrote about this extensively. There is no set routine that allows work to get done. It is about being aware and listening. How often do we find out the people on the floor or in the classroom had the best approach?

(From the article): Whatever problems we might be facing, we have to believe in ourselves and have trust on ourselves. We have to remember that as long as we are alive, we have the ability to try and solve it .   To overcome failure and succeed, we have to keep on moving.

Recently, I received some less than stellar information about a research project that I am involved in. I felt frustrated - unhappily contemplating what might happen next. My mind seem to be racing into negative oblivion, and I had to intervene quickly to stop the process.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 23, 2012 1:43 PM

(From the article): Interestingly, our brains may be wired to selectively pay more attention to negative information. As a result, over-reaction and panic can often occur. However, utilizing "bad" news wisely - can become a clear contributor to future success and survival. Predictably, most of us need a plan, to wade through the emotional "muck" and reach the safe shore on the other side.

John Michel's curator insight, May 24, 2013 6:12 AM

Conflicts are an inevitable part of running a small business. In fact, effectively resolving conflicts within your company can actually build a strong and diverse team that will keep fresh ideas and creativity flowing. If everyone agrees with the boss's point of view, your company's direction and efforts will get stale fast. That being said, too much conflict isn't desirable either. To achieve the delicate balance, you need to have the skills to intervene when a healthy debate goes awry.
