Management quotes
You don't manage people; you manage things. You lead people.

- Hooper, Admiral Grace
Five daily newspapers arrive in my California driveway. The New York times and the Wall Street Journal are supplemented by three local papers. As for magazines, I read, or at least skim, Business Week, Forbes, The Economist, INC; Industry Week, Fortune. Other subscriptions include Sales and Marketing Management, Modern Health Care, Progressive Grocer, High Tech Business, and Slaon Management Review from MIT. I religiously read Business Tokyo, Asia Week, and Far Eastern Economic Review. I glance at Newsweek and Time ... but I devour the New Republic, Policy Review, Foreign Affairs, The Washington Monthly, and Public Interest. How about books? A dozen or more each month.

- Peters, Thomas J.
Management is nothing more than motivating other people.

- Lee Iacocca
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.

- Peter Drucker
I tell you, sir, the only safeguard of order and discipline in the modern world is a standardized worker with interchangeable parts. That would solve the entire problem of management.

- Giraudoux, Jean
Management by objective works -- if you know the objectives. Ninety percent of the time you don't.

- Drucker, Peter F.
We achieve active mastery over illness and death by delegating all responsibility for their management to physicians, and by exiling the sick and the dying to hospitals. But hospitals serve the convenience of staff not patients: we cannot be properly ill in a hospital, nor die in one decently; we can do so only among those who love and value us. The result is the institutionalized dehumanization of the ill, characteristic of our age.

- Szasz, Thomas
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.

- Peters, Thomas J.
When a management with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.

- Buffett, Warren
Every professional athlete owes a debt of gratitude to the fans and management, and pays an installment every time he plays. He should never miss a payment.

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

- Murray, Bill
A good manager is a man who isn't worried about his own career but rather the careers of those who work for him. My advice: Don't worry about yourself. Take care of those who work for you and you'll float to greatness on their achievements.

- Burns, H.S.M.
Good managers have a bias for action.

- Peters, Thomas J.
A good manager doesn't try to eliminate conflict; he tries to keep it from wasting the energies of his people. If you're the boss and your people fight you openly when they think that you are wrong -- that's healthy.

- Townsend, Robert
Damn the great executives, the men of measured merriment, damn the men with careful smiles, damn the men that run the shops, oh, damn their measured merriment.

- Lewis, Sinclair
Effective managers live in the present but concentrate on the future.

- Hayes, James L.
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!

Those that despise people will never get the best out of others and themselves.

- Tocqueville, Alexis De
As a manager the important thing is not what happens when you are there, but what happens when you are not there.

- Blanchard, Ken
Management manages by making decisions and by seeing that those decisions are implemented.

- Geneen, Harold S.
