Blame it on the economy...

    Poor management is inexcusable, period! Bad economy, is all the more pressing to make sure the best management techniques are followed.

    For example, failure to plan, is a major tell-tale sign of poor management. I'm not talking about things that may be simple oversights or occasional issues. I'm talking about consistent, and almost predictable planning efforts. Call it what ever you like, poor planning is the hallmark of really poor management overall.

    Other aspects of poor management are limited effectiveness, and lacking human skills. If you're in the management game, you are in the PEOPLE business, whether you like it, or not.

    It's sad to see bad managers left unchecked, roaming in corporations. Wrecking havoc on the whole organisation. Most of the time, with the best intentions. But even those do not justify everything. At the end of the day, we're trying to run a business here in the most efficient way. If you're not up to the challenge, perhaps you might consider stepping aside and letting people who are willing and able shoulder the responsibilities.

    There are those managers who insist on reminding their employees of how fortunate and lucky they are to find jobs in this horrible economy. They fail to see the bigger picture in which their actual words are actually held against them. The fact is these people are hired DESPITE the economy. Take a step back and think, why? Perhaps due to a specific skill or talent that distinguished them from the 800 people who applied for that job.

    Yes, people need to be appreciative and grateful. Managers should be the first to show this appreciation and gratefulness. Because they're the ones with the most to lose, and talents that are easily replaceable.

    I'm really amused at some poor management examples that I've been witnessing. Especially when a rookie manager shows off on how he can "fire you all". Idiots like that need to be taken out back, and thrown in the garbage!

    The truth is, managers are NOTHING without their workforce, taking the grunt of the work and achieving all the stuff that they take credit for achieving. Killing the work force is a suicidal move. It's like going to your 1000 miles of desert having shot your own feet.

    I kept saying Management is an art, you can learn all aspects of it and still be an idiot! It's mostly simple logical connections and decisions. Often very subtle nudges, with an eye on the target and a plan to get there. I know it's simple to explain, but it's a talent. It's a rare talent.

    Too rare sometimes!

    Memories....

    Blame it on sunshine as well while at it ;)
    But seriously, HR are the 1 resource management has got to preserve and nurture.

    Management being an art is true, but I would add that it IS a scince as well. We need to redefine the concept as a whole; mgt is a Profession! Needs rules to regulate it (better), or we shall get a lot of "2008`s" shortly :(.
