Inheritance

March 12th, 2020

Problems of an enterprise, and the problems of management (and managers) of an enterprise are distinct, however they are easily, and thus often, mixed up.

Enterprise problems and insufficiencies automatically and immediately become problems of management. It is up to managers to mitigate or, better, solve these problems they have inherited.

Management problems and insufficiencies, or even worse, managers’ problems and insufficiencies, are not automatically inherited by the enterprise. However, if they persist long enough, they will become an enterprise problem.

Consistency works, both ways, but rarely immediately.
