Another management guru
on 10 November 2014
Some interesting ideas if only to show that targets are not necessarily the solution but can become the problem. However I always remember the old a Roman quote which I think often sums up the change management experience across the century's -
We trained hard . . . but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.
It's far too easy for managers to introduce change and convince themselves it's working when all that's happening is that the troops have made ill thought out change work despite itself. To put it another way and continue the Roman theme. John Seddon - 'he's not the messiah........he's just another management consultant' Let's not treat him like one.
