Replying really to Archi Kreuger's Intro

>The problem as I see it, with the management issues that I have described
above, is the reward/compensation structure combined with the "Good Ol'
Boy" network. Two rules at work here.


For you, or anyone else wrestling with the same set of problems and
looking for a practical place to start, add Peter Scott-Morgan's Unwritten
Rules of the Game [McGraw Hill 1994] to your reading list. At minimimum it
will help you do what you are already doing - work the system to achieve a
worthwhile end.

More generally change the rules and in my experience a lot of Sr Managers
change quite fast. Some of them even say 'at last we can do what we have
always wanted to', which is interesting. Sr managers are as stuck as
anyone else in the system.
