Here’s a great quote from Russell Ackoff:

“Managers are not confronted with problems that are independent of each other, but with dynamic situations that consist of complex systems of changing problems that interact with each other.

I call such situations messes…

Managers do not solve problems, they manage messes.”

It makes you view situations at work from a different perspective.

Are you in control of your ‘messes’ or do you need some help to manage them?
