"Dad, what do you do, anyhow?"

chaos, employability and the order of things

Let’s face the question: What do managers do, anyway? Are they information brokers between the “trenches” of daily operations and the corporate suite? Nope, these days the management information systems do that. Do they check that all systems are go and the production line is humming? No, because computers monitor what’s going on and the self-directed work teams and robots move production along. Do they take care of employees’ concerns and motivate them to greater achievements? Well, yes, some do, although with the corporatewide training programs and trends toward integrated work teams, not as much people management is needed as before.
