Leadership has to do with direction. Management has to do with the speed, coordination and logistics in going in that direction. The WORKERS are chopping their way through the jungle. The MANAGERS are coordinating, making sure the tools are sharp, etc. The LEADERS climb a tree and shout Wrong jungle!! The MANAGERS shout back Be quiet! We're making progress!


A memorandum is not written to inform the reader, but to protect the writer.

- Acheson, Dean

Man is the principal syllable in Management.

- Mckenzie, C. T.

Effective managers live in the present but concentrate on the future.

- Hayes, James L.

A president either is constantly on top of events or, if he hesitates, events will soon be on top of him. I never felt that I could let up for a moment.

Managers have traditionally developed the skills in finance, planning, marketing and production techniques. Too often the relationships with their people have been assigned a secondary role. This is too important a subject not to receive first line attention.

- Hewlitt, William

Successful Project Management: PLAN, EXECUTE, EVALUATE Sounds simple, but most projects aren't well planned nor are they evaluated well. The tendency is to jump right into execution and as soon as execution is completed (which usually isn't soon), move on to the next project without evaluating what happen on the present project and what could have been improved. Successful project management requires more front and back end resources (and less middle) than are usually allocated.


The government can destroy wealth but it cannot create wealth, which is the product of labor and management working with creation.

- Murray, Bill

The Trojans lost the war because they fell for a really dumb trick. hey, there's a gigantic wooden horse outside and all the Greeks have left. Let's bring it inside!

Who says middle management is useless?

- Engst, Adam C.

Managing is like holding a dove in your hand. Squeeze too hard and you kill it, not hard enough and it flies away.

A computer will not make a good manager out of a bad manager. It makes a good manager better faster and a bad manager worse faster.

- Esber, Edward

In real life, however, you don't react to what someone did; you react only to what you think she did, and the gap between action and perception is bridged by the art of impression management. If life itself is but what you deem it, then why not focus your efforts on persuading others to believe that you are a virtuous and trustworthy cooperator?

- Jonathan Haidt

Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere.

- Reagan, Ronald
