Musings on management

Thu, 2016-10-27 11:25

Written by Henry Mintzberg 

Management is a curious phenomenon. It is generously paid, enormously influential, and significantly devoid of common sense.

At least, the hype about management lacks common sense, as does too much of the practice. I should really say im-practice, because the problems grow out of the disconnection between management and the managed.

Kevin O’Leary is Wrong! It is NOT All About The Money!

Mon, 2016-10-24 13:41

I once went to see Kevin O’Leary at a Fireside Chat at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management, just to experience him in a more intimate situation. He was as abrasive and blunt as he was on Dragon’s Den. He still said “it was all about the money” and it made me sad. Read what he says about business being war. I hate war and violence and we do not need more of that in our world.

Senators have proposed emulating the UK’s NHS approach on citizen-centred healthcare and have urged the Oireachtas to consult with as many citizens as possible on the ‘important future’ of Irish healthcare, writes Lloyd Mudiwa.

Du pareil au même

Mon, 2016-09-26 13:04

L'un de nous est Américain, l'autre est Canadien; l'un est conservateur, l'autre est libéral. Nous vivons tous deux au Canada, une position privilégiée d'où suivre le déroulement de l'élection présidentielle aux États-Unis. Notre interrogation est la suivante : où sont les Américains honnêtes parmi la classe politique et la population?

Managers, et si vous appreniez à... vous taire!

Tue, 2016-09-20 14:40

...Bref, nombre de dirigeants d'entreprise gagneraient clairement à apprendre à se taire. Ne serait que pour mieux écouter ce que les autres ont à leur dire. D'ailleurs, le professeur de management à l'Université McGill Henry Mintzberg lui-même en a fait une loi, celle du 50-50, qui stipule que «tout dirigeant qui entre dans une discussion (en face-à-face, en réunion à plusieurs, etc.) se doit de parler tout autant qu'elle écoute», sans quoi elle ne retirera jamais rien d'intéressant de ses rencontres avec autrui.
