 Article Title :: Firing Employees Isn't for Sissies
 
"If we lived in a perfect world, there wouldn't be a need for managers." - Bryce's LawINTRODUCTIONI recently had a good friend experience a troubling termination of an employee. This was for a national retail distribution company where my friend serves as Sales Manager for one of the company's regional outlets. The problem centered on a young (thirty-ish) salesman who was well trained but acted like a loose cannon, e.g., policies and procedures weren't always followed, and he was caustic and abrasive with customers and suppliers alike. This inevitably resulted in some serious customer relations problems for the company. On more than one occasion, my friend w  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Why We Resist Change
 
"If anything in life is constant, it is change." - Bryce's LawINTRODUCTIONLike so many of you, I am often mystified as to why there is so much trouble in the middle East. We could easily blame it on religious fanaticism, be it Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. Perhaps. But I tend to believe it can primarily be attributed to change (or the fear of it). In this part of the world, there is great suspicion over the cultural differences between religious groups. Each side fears if they make peace and accept the other parties, it will have an adverse affect on their culture which is something they simply will not accept. In their minds, each believes th  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Craftsmanship: the Meaning of Life
 
"Manage more, supervise less." - Bryce's LawWhen I got into the work force back in the mid-1970's it seemed everyone dressed in a suit and tie, drank black coffee, smoked their brains out, and worked their butts off. Today, golf shirts have replaced suits, herbal tea and bottled water have replaced coffee, nobody is allowed to smoke, and rarely does anyone work beyond 5:00pm. More importantly, we used to care about the work we produced; there was a sense of craftsmanship, regardless of the job.My Brother-in-law in Cincinnati conducted me on a tour of his company's machine-tool shop years ago and showed me how he could take a block of aluminum and conv  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Understanding Corporate Culture
 
"All companies have a culture. In order for employees to function and succeed, it is essential they understand and believe in the culture." - Bryce's LawINTRODUCTIONThe subject of "corporate culture" seems to be on everyone's mind these days; from the college graduate entering the job market, to the IRM executive who is trying to improve management and productivity in his organization. It is the topic of interest at social and professional gatherings.The perceptive manager understands the importance of establishing and controlling the work environment, including both logical and physical considerations. Unfortunately, many managers do not   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Managing Consultants
 
"An expert is someone who lives more than 50 miles out of town and wears a tie to work." - Bryce's LawINTRODUCTIONThe need for outside contract services is nothing new. IT-related consultants have been around since the computer was first introduced for commercial purposes. Today, all of the Fortune 1000 companies have consultants playing different roles in IT, either on-site or offshore. Many companies are satisfied with the work produced by their consultants, others are not. Some consultants are considered a necessary evil who tackle assignments in an unbridled manner and charge exorbitant rates. For this type of consultant, it is not uncomm  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Managing Crunch Time
 
"All of your hard work, regardless of how well it is intended, is for naught if it results in a pile of rubbage." - Bryce's LawINTRODUCTIONOkay, you are under the gun to produce something by a given date; you do not have a lot of time for a robust methodology, nor are you interested in being encumbered with a lot of bureaucracy; you want to get the job done quickly and you want few problems; its "Crunch Time."This dilemma is faced by software development organizations every day. You are required to move heaven and earth in a short period of time with minimal resources. How you found yourself in this predicament is irrelevant. You can point   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Why Incorporate Your Business?
 
Entrepreneurs embark on costly business ventures without first looking into the form of business that would be most suitable for them given their business experience and financial capability. Deciding on what legal form your venture is going to take will spell the difference when you experience difficulty in your business later on. A businessman can choose from different business forms including sole or single proprietorship, partnership or a corporation. Each of these legal forms has their own advantages and disadvantages and a businessman should be well aware of their implications on his business venture. Sole proprietorship is the easiest business venture to put   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Beware of the 'Changing of the Guard'
 
"Its never lonely at the top of an IT organization, primarily because the IT Director is never there." - Bryce's LawINTRODUCTIONIn past bulletins, I have discussed how the corporate culture can be greatly influenced by the "Top Dog," meaning the head of the company. There are also subordinate "Top Dogs" who lead departments and their influence is limited only by what is allowed by their superior. This can be considerable if departments or divisions operate autonomously and inevitably results in subcultures that often operate at odds with the overall corporate culture. This phenomenon is particularly apparent in IT Departments who often have a revolving door  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Managing from the Bottom-Up
 
"If we lived in a perfect world, there would not be a need for managers." - Bryce's Law"Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere." - Ronald Reagan (1986)When the American colonies were forming a government in the 18th century, there was a fleeting notion that George Washington should become King with absolute power. Instead, our founding fathers opted for a democratic society where officials were elected by the people. The intent was to give the individual citizen a means to participate in the running of the government. This was a wise decision and has served America well for over 225 years.
