Here you will find a selection of very basic things I believe in based on ...
Learning will never end.
Here you will not find parts of management literature.
Very simple: Results matter. At the end every entrepreneur and manager needs to achieve them. For that reason I prefer resulting instead of consulting.
Customers are the source for revenue. Therefore total customer orientation is vital, not an option. Sometimes it is also very meaningful to think of the customers of your customer.
People are not just resources, people are the spirit of every organisation. They live and emboss an organisations' culture. The choice of people is a top 3, may be the top decision for every leader.
A brilliant team is able to change the world. Finding the right people with the right attitude for a team is always a challenge; working together as a team is another one.
1. "(Hierarchy) organisation is nothing; organising towards customers is everything." (from me)
2. "Organising is the art of reducing and structuring complexity to a minimum impact." (from me)
"Make, buy or partner?": The need for collaboration and cooperation is growing. Excellence in these two topics make global leading companies. Platform businesses are a digital example for this.
Management is a craft. Doing management means that you should have learned what you are doing, e.g. knowing different approaches without being addicted to only one.
Hypothesis: "If you put some good and well-motivated people into a room with a clear target and enough resources, the last things they will discuss are organisation and methodology of work."
Most of methods were developed in a certain environment, context or situation and worked out so well that they became a method or best-practice approach. Of course they will not work with the same effectiveness and efficiency in other environments. So if you only follow methods of others you may never lead. Yet knowing various methods and combining the best parts of it to a working operational model may win and can become a method on its own.
