Meine Lieblingszitate von Peter Drucker:
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.
There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.
Meine Lieblingszitate aus den NASA 100 Rules for Project Management:
Rule #3: Management principles still are the same. It is just that the tools have changed. You still find the right people to do the work and get out of the way so they can do it.
Rule #32: People have reasons for doing things the way they do them. Most people want to do a good job and, if they don’t, the problem is they probably don’t know how or exactly what is expected.
Andere Zitate, die ich zitierenswert finde:
The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides. Accept life, and you must accept regret.
Derjenige der sagt, es ist nicht machbar, sollte denjenigen der es macht nicht bei der Arbeit stören.
If you think you are too small to make a difference, you never spent a night with a mosquito.
