A few words on management

Escape from Cubicle Nation: Open letter to CEOs, COOs, CIOs and CFOs across the corporate world

This is a great rant- the solutions are not necessarily solutions I would choose, but the
message to management is timely.

– some points I particularly liked were under the following headings:

– Don’t spend millions of dollars trying to change your culture

– Don’t ask for employees’ input if you’re not going to listen to it

– Don’t train people until you know what problem you are solving

– Focus on the work people do, not how or when they do it

I suspect there’s a lot more good sense in the articles on her website but I would still prefer to fix the system than abandon it.
