Drucker’s Management Contradiction

So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
Peter F. Drucker (1909 – 2005, American-Austrian management consultant)

The first myth of management is that it exists. The second myth of management is that success equals skill.Robert Heller (1932-, British business writer, founding editor of Management Today)

An overburdened, over-stretched executive is the best executive, because he or she doesn’t have the time to meddle, to deal in trivia, to bother people
Jack Welch (1935-, former CEO of General Electric)

It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.
Bill Gates (1955-, American computer genius, businessman, co-founder of Microsoft)
