Business management is an underrated art.
I’m continuously amazed by business managers that try to shoot astronauts to the Moon with a slingshot. When it doesn’t work, they build a bigger and better slingshot and convince everyone that this one will work, it has to (their contract is running out and they want to stay). Alas, this slingshot doesn’t do the job.
For many business managers, it never occurs to them that they may need to bring in a few rocket scientists to achieve their goal. They keep building slingshots until the owners wise up. Unfortunately, the owners so very often hire a cannon builders to replace the slingshot guy.
