The Latest Management Fad

An emerging theme that I have encountered in conversations of late is the perception that project management is becoming the latest management fad. Interestingly, my reaction has ranged from "Is it?" to "Already?" to "Why did it take this long?" For someone who has been on the inside of promoting and developing project management as a corporate competency, it is easy to develop the impression that this is the way things have always been done.

Whether you’re selling a product or a service, customers are the life blood of your business. Of course they are, everyone knows this.

Six Sigma Survey: Six Sigma Packs a Punch - Quality Digest Magazine
espite its success, Six Sigma is often scorned as just the latest management fad, a repackaging of what has already been done, a rose by some other name. Even within Quality Digest, there have been articles and editorials critical of the process improvement methodology championed by industry giants like Motorola since the mid-1980s. But there is no arguing with success, and “success” seems to be the word among the majority of Six Sigma practitioners. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Tuesday Morning Quarterback begins his annual NFL preview by breaking down the AFC
The National Football League is all about running the ball, right? That's what you hear. Yet for two consecutive seasons, the last-ranked rushing team made the Super Bowl -- Arizona in 2008 and Indianapolis in 2009 reached the ultimate game despite having the league's worst rushing offense those seasons. True, both lost, but 30 of the 32 NFL franchises gladly would have traded places with the team that lost the Super Bowl. And last season, the AFC's two best teams, winning the first-round byes -- San Diego and Indianapolis -- were 31st and 32nd overall, respectively, in rushing.

5 crucial tips for raising money-smart kids
We don't want our kids to make the same mistakes we did. When it comes to money, that can be a tall order. Before I was a “financial expert,” I spent more than I earned, started saving too late, racked up half a year's salary in credit card debt and cashed out a 401(k). I want my children — ages 13 and 16 — and yours to avoid those missteps. I want them to grow up knowing how to live within their means, put something away for tomorrow and reach for a financial goal. Many U.S. schools don't teach basic money management, but the only way to guarantee that your offspring absorb this important ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

NASA - 18 Lessons from A Very Successful American Leader
Good leadership involves responsibility to the welfare of the group, which means that some people will get angry at your actions and decisions. It's inevitable — if you're honorable. Trying to get everyone to like you is a sign of mediocrity: You'll avoid the tough decisions, you'll avoid confronting the people who need to be confronted, and you'll avoid offering differential rewards based on differential performance because some people might get upset. Ironically, by procrastinating on the difficult choices, by trying not to get anyone mad, and by treating everyone equally "nicely" regardless of ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Question for Managers: Do you treat all of your employees the same?
People have different needs. I try to do what is necessary to get the job done. Pleasant people generally need less attention and assistance because a lot of people are willing to help. Unpleasant people tend to need more attention and encouragement to get the same job done. My job would be easier if all people were pleasant. But if anyone could do it, everyone would do it. That's why they pay me "the big bucks". Ha! I once worked at a place where everyone made the same rate. It was interesting because people gravitated to the jobs they were good at, rather than the jobs that paid best.  by SharonW on ...
