Does Management Know Best?


The belief that management knows best is outdated. It’s a remnant from the scientific management era that brought factory work to prominence in the U.S. We’ve believed in this view for so long we hardly realize it dominates our perspective.

The truth is this belief cripples a team and ultimately an organization’s ability to compete and remain relevant in today’s 24-hour business world.

I had the pleasure to write about this in a guest post for our friend James Strock. Please check out the post here on James’s blog.

Lead on!
