The Management Myth

The Management Myth | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | 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.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

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?

It's easy to guess why gainfully employed people decide to up and leave their jobs. However, discovering the real reasons why individuals quit can be a little bit more difficult.

If you were given a few years to live, how would your life change? More importantly, what would you stop doing? (What do you need to *stop* doing?

If we can't alter 24 hours in every day, we need to stop doing some stuff to make more time for important stuff!
