Management calculus

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on

People say management isn’t a zero sum game and they’re telling the truth. There are, however maths in management.

Management by subtraction – your managers tell people what the standards are and are able to explain what they didn’t do.

Management through division – your managers use the activities you have undertaken to split the workforce up.

Management through addition – this is the expectation, and you did this, this, and this. How do we help get further up?

Management through multiplication – take your great skills and work with these people to generate more than the sum of the parts.
