Management Consulting

+ 100 buzzes
Management consulting is the practice of helping organizations to improve their performance, operating primarily through the analysis of existing organizational problems and the development of plans for improvement. Organizations may draw upon the services of management consultants for a number of reasons, including gaining external (and presumably objective) advice and access to the consultants' specialized expertise.

    There are many large issues out there; however, we all need to start looking at the world from a survival perspective rather than a profit one. Too much focus is place of "Global Warming or Client Change" and not enough on hard pollution. The rise in global temperature will be solved with the next major eruption of Iceland's Hekla volcano (it is long over-due), which is expected to cause a global DECREASE in temperature of 2C... but nothing in nature can solve the hard waste pollution issue.

    "Out of sight, out of mind" is a very dangerous concept and one that every company should abandon. Make a profit, but don't do it at the expense of life. As you read the story below try to remember that recently two Sperm whales were washed up dead, the stomachs filled with plastic garbage.

    Global success with an entrepreneurship mindset, advanced IT resources, knowledge and resources. Open minded with a natural leadership , i define "success" as the following :

    "When it happens that you succeed, you have against you 1) everyone that wanted to do the same 2 )all the guys that did the exact opposite 3) finally, but not the least, every competitor that did absolutely nothing about the subject matter".

    Therefore some of you would be willing to engage a conversation, right ? but how ?

    I travel worldwide so i use digital work spaces to collaborate, consult and audit.

    The greatest obstacle for next generation enterprises worldwide is the ability to start in the future and remain on the crest of the wave in order to see that which is always ahead. In other words, the ability to determine or imagine what the future will be, and start to build the foundation of an enterprise based on the theoretical hypothesis of what might be, rather than utilizing what is sure to become antiquated before the enterprise ever begins in earnest.

    Management needs a story. Your points are excellent. A manager without a story of leadership that is larger than the team will usually meander into command and control. I have been there many times. The time/needs can outweigh the need for kindness establishing a tail spin to of mediocrity or worst.

    Managers almost always lack the inputs that leaders used to develop a story of success. They have to create their own or ask for a glimpse of what lead to the targets. Without these we can only guide in the short term.

    As to this ' Like your sentiments, but I've watched management operate for 38 years and it won't change.' Well, I believe you, but where will they be in another 38 years? Pensioned off or dead. Then again, things will never change; I'll never see a Black American president in my lifetime....

    Good post, @gael Chatelain. Management has always been a bit of a "court," with people surrounding themselves with like-minded individuals. There's a certain "normalcy" to this, showing support for the "likeable" and criticism for the "unlikeable." Unfortunately, the "unlikeable" are often the ones who can't find traction being "chums" or "like-minded." Managers will never accept this, regardless of the articles telling them it's just "good business." It's not good business for them. Surrounding themselves with "accomplices" is what they know and understand. Like your sentiments, but I've watched management operate for 38 years and it won't change.

    #3 Thank you, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. What's holding the company together is continuing good results on Wall Street. However, with their lack of recognition of external forces such as the changing generation of shoppers, government induced wage hikes, their lack of investment in technology, a culture that does not foster staff or managers taking the initiative or offering suggestions, coupled with extremely skinny margins, makes me think their future is uncertain.

    #1 I think I know the answers, @Harvey Lloyd. They promote from within and rarely bring in new people from the outside for management positions, so it is a self-perpetuating process. Also, with the continuing and constant adoration from management of the founder and his wisdom, it feels somewhat like a cult. And, I think we all know how those contained within cults close ranks around their guiding ideology to protect it.

    #2 This is an interesting buzz and I thank @Harvey Lloyd for the tag.
    @Steven Marshall- this is a very interesting post. I extracted the following observation from your buzz:
    As a result, the vision has become more akin to an annual operating plan rather than a long-term view to the future.
    From his passing to the present - nearly 30 years - there are very few notable achievements or breakthroughs in their approach to retailing and customer service.
    There was only approximately 15 minutes out of eight hours spent on the subject of delivering excellent customer service.
    I wonder if the "drag effect" is holding the company together. What puzzles me is that the founder had a future vision that made the company successful. The company had a model of its own for success. Why so many companies lose their mindset and move away from what made them successful still puzzles me. What -to-do recommendations are excellent.

    I really found these posts educational and enjoyed reading them, thank you. But have a question. Any company of the size you imply should be able to see the issues highlighted in your posts. Shouldn't they?

    I can walk in an establishment and in just a few minutes recognize good management and a great place to work. Or the opposite.

    With all the education and success behind the leadership team, i assume they too can see things better than i do. I find it fascinating that you would have to tell someone their house is on fire. I seek enlightenment in this area. Specifically why such an experienced bunch could miss the obvious.

    Your thoughts?
