There is a huge need for “change” , for “corporate excellence” , to tackle the world’s problems in a whole. But how? Absolutely NOT how we did “manage” it the last 120 years. LEAN, SixSigma, PDCA, AI, ERP, ….. all “tools” to “get on track” again. But which track ? The same? Preferably not I would say.

Excellence should be a mindset by default , and for many of us it is, in fact I cannot imagine somebody going to work in the morning saying “Let’s make as much trouble as possible” and yet…. How do we get into as much trouble as we do ? My answer is simple : Because we have poor (weak) decision making. And how is that possible? By information getting
filtered out through “subjective analyze”. In this blog I will be posting some comments on (global and local) issues, which could be a result of poor decision making, just for the sake of showing that this is a universal problem in all industries and through all categories or levels of decision takers.

Clowns to the left of me jockers to the right, YEAH ! 1972 song by Stealers Wheel

My oh my, funny how a song combined with a situation can stick !
Really I am NOT the person breaking down the institute of "Management" but sometimes it is too obvious that many organizations are better off  if some "managers" just stayed home !

The polarization of an organization where you have two sides , management and executors has soo much negative impact with sooo much "waste" it's almost normal that the world cannot cope with the buildup of management f*ckups.

Imagine a fishers boat , casting its nets and getting 150 kilograms of fish with every cast. (And the fishermen being happy with the catch)

Imagine the net down below wondering why he twirls down on a spot where there are only a couple of fish while 100 meters further there are 200 times more fish.

The net gets to the surface and yells at the boat to the men to go 100 meters further to get to better fishing grounds and then try to get the impression the net gets when the fishermen just ignore the information.

... yep , clowns to the left of me, jockers to the right ....

The information organizations need for excellent decisionmaking is probably inhouse and free of charge !

Just ask or just listen  ;-)
