Food for Thought

Posted By Guy Pfeffermann, Monday, May 13, 2013

Guy Pfeffermann I came across this quote yesterday as I was reading and found it quite relevant to GBSN's mission and vision for social and economic development.  Management matters.

"[T]he winning of great wars always requires superior organization, and that in turn requires people who can run those organizations, not in a blinkered way but most competently and in a fashion that will allow outsiders to feed fresh ideas into the pursuit of victory. None of this can be done by the chiefs alone, however great their genius, however massive their energy. There has to be a support system, a culture of encouragement, efficient feedback loops, a capacity to learn from setbacks, and ability to get things done.”

Paul Kennedy, "Engineers of Victory – The Problem Solvers who turned the Tide in the Second World War” Conclusion Chapter – "Problem Solving in History” (Random House, 2013, p. 372)
