When Management Fails

Posted: January 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

Geoffrey James wrote about the five dumbest management concepts in BNET’s blog. Downsizing is one of them and he remarks that downsizing is a failure of management to be, in other words, effective and proactive.

I agree with him in terms that MBA students are taught to be leaders, to inspire employees, to use modern management techniques to make better decisions. The truth is at what extent all these techniques are effective or efficient in the real world of the operations on a daily basis.

MBA schools have to provide a more realistic approach and put more emphasis on tactics than strategies. All the researches about management, statistics, market analysis and new tools or techniques are nice, and don’t get me wrong, I like them; but, they are really effective, efficient, down to earth, aren’t they?
