the name may change, but the job will never disappear. someone has to take care, take the lead, organize, set objectives, motivate, and most of all, develop people.
To manage is to call for yourself the responsibility to work with valuable and limited resources, money and lives. To be the place where everybody goes for a kind and smart decision. The name may change, of course.... but the passion for risks still.
Just a big bad bearded biker, that would run into a burning house, to rescue a cat.
I hope soon... in my experience most "managers" are simply a way to waste money. To myself, I call those people "Businesskasper".
A great manager can never be replaced by process. Managers who are not leaders will become irrelevant - a person who fights for the team, and pushes to develop the staff - and cares about excellence - can never be replaced
Where Dance Studies meets maths. I am currently studying dance studies and have my Bachelors in Business Administration. I have worked as a project assistant in Dance Events ever since. Lets see what the future holds.
Wow. I think that managers NEVER will become obsolete. A manager manages. Thats all that he does. Management is not a magic talent from god or an evil punishment tool. People need rules and organization to be productive. It lies all in the balance ;) #keepitsimple #cheers
We just started to use #agile in our company and the role of (senior) management is a lot less then clear up until now - I still see the need for a manager (strategy/vision), but the days of middle/micro management seem to be over.
Companies still cite “building a learning culture” as one of their top challenges (Bersin '15). Do we need micro-management if employees continuously seek to learn? We provide the opportunity to find the training-support you need on taincrowd.
More and more people are hired on demand for short term projects. These may be smart versatile people, but they often aren’t given details of overarching project goals, which leaves them limited to executing their core tasks and following orders.
I think we're just calling them by other names. There still need to be people who organise, manage, make decisions, plan and direct. It's better if we call them by more active related titles to remind them of their actual jobs.
I have been there and back and I have been changed. I draw. I paint. I work hard at both. My only stock in trade is what I put down on paper and canvas. I also write stuff. It's what I do although I held a bunch of day jobs to make money.
Never. What else can we do with the self-important and untalented? But there are plenty of folks who wear the manager title who manage by example, by doing the job and helping others to do it. There's always room for them. Just not parasites.
Managers who lead, never. Managers who demand, in time. People will anyways need leading and not pushing. I, for one are happier working for a manager who is willing to work as hard as their employees and not just delegate.
Sooner than many are comfortable with. As technology continues to automate that which should be automated, managers will need to build skills in areas to that foster collaboration, cooperation and knowledge sharing.
