Should Employee Engagement Even Be a Priority? — 1-on-1 Management™
.” As I worked through the article, I also worked my way rapidly through a range of emotions – from curiosity to irritation to anger to defensiveness to understanding and, finally, back to curiosity. The author, Wally Bock , posits that “employee engagement,” and those consultants that preach its importance, have simply created the next management fad. His points, if I understood them correctly, are that employee engagement is poorly defined and difficult to measure, that it is not the be-all, end-all answer to management success, and that consultants tend to be more concerned about the actual state of ... market research, surveys and trends
#71-9/10/08: The Next Fad Is Here
One of my clients, for many years, has been a high technology company.  One of the members of the training department (now retired) used to tell me that he was always on the look out for the latest management fad.  His goal was to avoid them.  He said he liked my work because it got results and it didn’t change with the wind like the latest fads did.  I considered it a compliment but didn’t pay much attention to fads or to what anyone else was doing.

The background of TQM is explained in a Federal Quality Institute publication, "Introduction to Total Quality Management in the Federal Government." From about 1960 to 1990, the United States lost 40 percent of its market share to foreign competitors, while Japan ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

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.

I'm no expert in issues surrounding corporations or the general management of a company, but I have friends that have worked as subordinates in companies and as top consultants in agencies hired by companies that tell me horror stories about this kind of behavior. It's almost as if top management refuses to believe that their current practices aren't working, regardless of how renowned the consulting agency is. What does this occur?
