Some of the quotes used in Chapter 1 – Why management matters
“So whether you are managing a software company, a hospital, a bank or a Boy Scout organization, the differences apply to only about 10 per cent of your work. This 10 per cent is determined by the organization’s specific mission, its specific culture, its specific history and its specific vocabulary. The rest is pretty much interchangeable”, Peter Drucker.
“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other“, John F. Kennedy.
“Corporations and managers suffer from a profound social ambivalence” (leading theorists) Sumantra Ghoshal, Christopher Bartlett and Peter Moran.
