1) MANAGING BY WALKING FASTER THEN THE EMPLOYEES

These kind of managers you will always see in the corridor, ten steps
away. "We'll have to talk" you can hear them say, just as they have
disappeared around the corner.


2) MANAGING BY STARING OUT OF THE WINDOW

These managers you usually meet with their backside faced to you with
their hands in their pockets. When you talk to them, their thoughts
keep staring out of the windows.


3) MANAGING BY POST-IT'S

Some managers forget everything. They want to impress you with their
'busy'ness by continuously writing on Post-it's while you are
talking.


4) MANAGING BY DELEGATION TO THE SECRETARY

These managers just delegate everything to the secretary. If he is
good, He knows what she must do.


5) MANAGING BY KNOWING NOTHING

These managers don't really know anything at all. They let YOU give
answers. Meanwhile they fill the time with nice anecdotes of
irrelevant cases.


6) MANAGING BY CONCEPTUAL THINKING

These people try to explain the present from a theoretical view of
the far future. The idea that this never will work, completely
satisfies them: They will always have something to talk about.


7) MANAGING BY HIDING INFORMATION

Information hiders are aware of the market value of strictly secret
kept information. You must be very thankful to get any information at
all. Beware of simulants from category 5!


8) MANAGING BY DOING EXACTLY WHAT THE BOSS SAYS

These managers prevent their bosses from creative thinking. Else they
got more work to do.


9) MANAGING BY WALKING ONE FOOT BEHIND THE BOSS

In hierarchical organizations you can watch those groups walking in
the corridor. The more equal managers are directly followed by the
lesser equal managers, and so on.


10) MANAGING BY SMILING AND WEARING NICE SUITS

If you drink beer with them, lunch with them, smile to them and also
wear nice suits, nothing can stop your carreer anymore.


11) MANAGING BY STUDYING

Despite their continual attendances of all kind of studies and
congresses, they still belong to category 5. The longer they learn,
the further they get from the practice.


12) MANAGING BY CREATING VAGUE OVERHEAD SHEETS

Do you know them? Those sheets with some big arrows,boxes or circles?
These sheets provide the ultimate proof of their overall brilliance.


13) MANAGING BY OPEN DOOR AND EMPTY ROOM

This is a major improvement of the older 'OPEN DOOR' management
style. Now you can really walk in and out anytime you want. Nobody
ever knows where these managers are.


14) MANAGING BY SPEAKING WITH OTHER MANAGERS

This kind of managing is very popular. It will give them within a few
hours the same information as an employee can tell them in 15
minutes.


15) MANAGING BY HAVING A NON SUPPORTING INFRASTRUCTURE

In an organization with a hopeless infrastructure, managers are
really necessary. These managers will naturally prevent the
organization from having a better infrastructure.


16) BUA MANAGEMENT ( BY USING ABBREVIATIONS )

This management style is ATRASACWOC. ( Adopted To Reach A Shorter And
Clearer Way Of Communication )


17) MANAGING BY USING BUZZ WORDS

These managers like to bluff your head off with hip, nearly
undefined, terms.


18) MANAGING BY REORGANIZATION

If they think there is nothing more to organize, they reorganize.


19) MANAGING BY BELIEVING

These managers must be spiritual educated, because they have no clues
at all.


20) MANAGING BY FORGETTING PROMISES

If you remind them to one of their promisses, the priority of that
promise is to low to remember.
