Leadership or Management Pipeline?
Simon Buzza, Business Consultant, United Kingdom

This appears to be a very helpful model for understanding management roles and planning management development. However, it also seems to be something of a misnomer as there is a clear difference between management and leadership. Leadership is about having a vision for a group that sets a direction that they follow.
Management controls or directs people/resources in a group according to processes or values that have already been established. So, this model might better be described as the management pipeline.

Leadership / Management Pipeline
Jacques Strydom, Business Consultant, South Africa
If one assumes Drotter's position that management and leadership or two sides of the same coin and that one is actually a manager-leader (or a leader-manager), it is is not important whether this is called a management or a leadership pipeline.
During a session with Drotter, he indicated that he uses the terms synonymously.

Leadership and Management Pipeline
Anton Verwey, CEO, South Africa
I agree with Jaques. The debate of management versus leadership is over - there is agreement in most literature that the requirement is for both. We have found it more valuable to explore the issue from a complexity (SST) perspective in terms of how the various transiitons relate to both capability and competence.
