Manage! to Stay in the Game

by David L. Whitney
 

Management often lacks the winsome clarity to sports. On the field of play, we see what works and what doesn’t. It’s not possible to drop the ball anonymously, no matter how clever or charming we are. That’s clarity. Perhaps it’s one reason why we love sports.
Management is different. We can fake it. Business behavior that gets players

Overview

Management often lacks the winsome clarity to sports. On the field of play, we see what works and what doesn’t. It’s not possible to drop the ball anonymously, no matter how clever or charming we are. That’s clarity. Perhaps it’s one reason why we love sports.
Management is different. We can fake it. Business behavior that gets players thrown out of the game is often tolerated, and even encouraged.
Otherwise, business management and sports are a lot alike. Each has an arena where the game is played, a draft of incoming players, a training camp, a high-performance zone of concentration, a motivational game plan, a coach/manager, and a code of performance-ethics that legitimizes the entire endeavor.
Manage! to Stay in the Game uses sports-clarity to highlight several basic management principles and practices, making them more accessible to managers who love the game. The book also is unique in that it focuses Biblical wisdom on the organizational business game. This is becoming increasingly important as society moves away from the underlying principles that once made management a fairer contest.
