Office Madness

Wednesday, November 6th, 2002

I’m listening to Marc trying to explain to Tony the reasons behind his belief that the wind would keep blowing if time stopped. Marc is also trying to work out the colour of time – apparently this would change depending on which direction you were going!

Yesterday Tony quoted Weinberg on selecting team members.

Whatever else it does, this model makes managers over-anxious about selecting people for teams, and under-anxious about exercising their control function throughout the life of those teams.

I seem to be surrounded by mad men. Does this mean that I need to rethink the selection process or do I need to find a way to control the madness that exists in the current team?
