Timeless Management Thinking

Leadership and management guru, Tom Peters recently posted a interesting list of management ideas from his experience over the past 30 years. All are thought provoking - here are 3 to wet your appetite:

  • failure = normal = good. ("Reward Excellent failure. Punish mediocre success." "Fail Faster. Succeed sooner." "Fail.Forward.Fast")
  • Survival = PSF/Professional Services Firm "mindset". Goal#1: Enable clients to become successful beyond their dreams!
  • The "right thing" is the profitable thing

Not sure if they all apply in every situation, in the new economy, but nonetheless they will make you think about their application in your organization, and likely also about your current company culture. Have a conversation about how they are applicable in your business and whether you agree or disagree - in the end, they still stimulate a conversation, and therefor worthwhile.
