Complexity of Management
Andrew Blaine, Business Consultant, South Africa
While I accept your commentary, I also feel that the increasing of complexity in management is often falsely created simply to cover inefficiency or lack of ability. The famous generals of the past and present all act as examples of simplicity in management, and the direct control of peoples lives always, for me, outweighs the complexities of business.
An old wag said "Perfection is doing a lot of little things very well". In business complex challenges are normally resolved by adopting this approach because the little things are, more often than not, simple and, when combined, they make up the complex challenge that needs resolution.
