Managing the Managers Who Move Your Organization Forward
Management can be, well, difficult to manage. In too many organizations the term itself is a synonym for unnecessary paperwork and uninformative meetings, conjuring an image somewhere between befuddled bureaucrat and dominating parent. But the real function of management - it's highest function - is to keep the organization on track, constantly adjusting resources, activities, and priorities so that the highest priority outputs are delivered despite significant, unforeseeable changes along the way. If you’re running a management team you need everyone working together on your higher-level goals, not creating silos and arguments among themselves.
