Management Ideas indb vii 19 5 08 16 06 03,Management Ideas indb viii 19 5 08 16 06 03. Introduction, T his book provides a short introduction to the management concepts. that have most influenced companies over the past century or so and. to some of the more influential people behind them These people and. their ideas are no longer confined to the pages of learned management. journals or to the lecture halls of prestigious business schools Many are. mentioned nowadays in the pages of the everyday business press and in. general management training material Yet few of them are familiar to the. average person in an office, The popularity of these ideas changes over time They are subject to. fashion like everything else Not long ago the Japanese concept of kaizen. or slow gradual improvement was being studied intensively by managers. in the West But nowadays no one literally has time for kaizen Change it. seems is happening so rapidly that only big breakthroughs and dramatic. outcomes will do Even Toyota itself the epitome of kaizen has declared. its allegiance to kakushin the Japanese version of dramatic change. Bain Company a Boston based consulting firm provides a barometer. of that change in the shape of an annual survey of the most popular. management ideas In 1997 strategic planning mission and vision. statements and benchmarking headed its list in 2007 ten years on. strategic planning kept the top slot But reflecting today s sharper focus. on customers crm customer relationship management and customer. segmentation came second and third As ideas drop in and out of fashion. the need to update a book like this increases, The final selection of ideas and gurus included here was inevitably a. personal one There are 54 gurus in the book but there could as easily be. 154 A small band of them appears in virtually all such lists a band that. is more or less confined to what can be called the Famous Five Peter. Drucker Douglas McGregor Michael Porter Alfred Sloan and Frederick. Winslow Taylor, Most of these lists are produced by business magazines and manage.
ment writers like me But one such list stands out from the rest In 2003. Harvard Business Review asked gurus themselves to name their favourite. guru and they came up with an interestingly different selection which. is not so surprising since it is not unlike asking those shortlisted for the. Turner Prize to name their favourite painter Although the gurus placed. Management Ideas indb 1 19 5 08 16 06 03,INTRODUCTION. Peter Drucker predictably at the top they put James March in second. place and Herbert Simon in third Tom Peters was nowhere to be seen. Around my famous five swirl others who have come and gone with. the years In the 1980s for example the Japanese had their moment of. glory when Kenichi Ohmae Akio Morita and Japan s adopted Americans. W Edwards Deming and Joseph Juran were treated like the Delphic oracle. itself Then there was a moment when Europeans seemed about to burst. into vogue people like Yves Doz French Geert Hofstede and Manfred. Kets de Vries Dutch and Charles Handy Irish But then they too faded. somewhat overshadowed again by Americans who have persistently. dominated the field Out of my list of 54 34 of them have American. nationality There are more Mormons on the list than there are Britons. The rising stars having their moment now are Indian albeit Indians. with one foot in the West C K Prahalad was born in Madras but did. much of his early work with Gary Hamel an American at the University. of Michigan Sumantra Ghoshal though born in Calcutta died in the UK. while working at London Business School and both Pankaj Ghemawat. at iese and Rakesh Khurana at Harvard Business School were born in. India In the next decade it may be a field that the Chinese or perhaps. even the Russians turn their minds to This opens up endless possibilities. for new entries in later editions of this book perhaps on Mahjong strategy. or on Gary Kasparov and chessmaster leadership, There is occasional overlap between gurus and ideas Just a few men. have come to be associated with a single idea people like Robert Kaplan. and the balanced scorecard for instance or Dave Ulrich and human. resources transformation Many more of them however have been. remarkably broad in their thoughts distinguished particularly for their. way of expressing them In some cases they own ideas because they. were the first to name them People like Ted Levitt Alvin Toffler William. Whyte and even Peter Drucker have shone almost as much for their illu. minating writing as for what they were writing about. For management ideas are rarely rocket science As ge s Jack Welch. An idea is not necessarily a biotech idea That s the wrong view. of what an idea is An idea is an error free billing system An. idea is taking a process that used to require six days to do and. getting it done in one day, Both the gurus and the ideas in this book can be grouped more or less. Management Ideas indb 2 19 5 08 16 06 03,INTRODUCTION. into one or other of what have been the two main streams of management. thinking at least since Noah employed carpenters near Ararat to build him. an ark the idea that management is a science represented most notably. by F W Taylor s ideas about scientific management and the idea that. management is about motivating represented most memorably perhaps. by Douglas McGregor s Theory Y This divide also accounts for the two. main disciplines that management gurus come from social science repre. sented by Elton Mayo McGregor Abraham Maslow and Elliott Jaques. and engineering represented by Taylor Michael Porter Michael Hammer. and Taiichi Ohno, This book is designed to lead the interested reader on to further learning.
through the reading lists that are attached to many of the entries My. original aim was to compile the 100 greatest management ideas and the. 100 greatest gurus of the 20th century an average of one big thought and. one big thinker per year being about as much as anyone could hope for It. might have answered the question who would have won the Oscars one. per year for best thought and one per year for best thinker throughout. the 20th century A prize which should perhaps be called a Winslow But. it was a list too long for a single tome, Lastly I would like to thank Stephen Brough at Profile Books for. believing with me that there was a market for a product like this And I. would also like to thank all the management thinkers and writers referred. to in the book Unfortunately many of them have suffered from the. volumes of mumbo jumbo that are published as management wisdom. every year and that give their genre a bad name But the fun in writing. this book came from the fact that the best of them throw extraordinary. flashes of insight on the way that most of us spend the greater part of our. waking days If the book has mirrored just a few of those flashes it will. have achieved its aim,Tim Hindle,Management Ideas indb 3 19 5 08 16 06 03.
