Funny: Management – a definition
I found this definition of management in one of the letters to the Economist this week funny.
One traditional definition of “management” in older English dialects was, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, “to spread manure”. This has not been lost on those of us who have observed, and misguidedly sometimes employed, managers trained in punditry who have pursued agendas consistent with that ancient description.
Reminded me of a painting by James Ensor called “Doctrinal Nourishment” that I saw at the Getty a year ago.
