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?
