Management has 6 resources to acquire and utilize. The manpower is the first and one of the most important resources in the list. A leader should understand the people he needs to work for his team.

In finding for manpower, the leader has to consider the other resources such as money, machines, methods, materials and marketing as well as other factors.

  1. Great overview of strong leadership, Andreas. I like your focus on objectives. Although you don’t say it explicitly, I like your implications that leaders have to understand the maintain priorities in order to keep the focus on objectives.

  2. Good points. I always find that the best laid out plans, the things that we all need to do, are thrown to the waist side because we ran out of time, energy, and passion.

    I can design an organization with a culture that will repetitively fail; fail in either the good way or the bad way. I can also design an organization that will repetitively succeed; succeed in either the good way or the bad way.

    During the design, it all boils down to the 5C’s, something I seem to be using quite often.
    – Capacity
    – Caring
    – Credibility
    – Communicate
    – Capability

    We can structure things so people have the capacity to do something, may they be leaders or a producers.
