Peter Scholtes is an educator, not a guru. A guru is one who develops
a doctrine and seeks disciples who accept and transmit it without
modification. No deviation is acceptable. Any modification is a
sign of disloyalty, in fact, heresy. Its consequence is excommunication.
Educators, on the other hand, encourage and even try to inspire
progressive deviations from what they have said. Their objective is
not to remove the need for further learning, as is the guru’s, but to initiate
it—to provide a springboard from which their students can dive
into their own minds, discover what is there, and develop it.
The number of management gurus is increasing at an alarming
rate. We do not yet have one guru per manager but we are rapidly approaching
that number. The ultimate success of a guru is to produce
the fad of the week, becoming number one on the managerial hit parade.
Successful or not, gurus preach panaceas the validity of which
they pretend to have received directly from the Great Manager in the
Sky, who actually resides in the mind of the gurus.
What educators teach comes from experience, their own and that of
others, not from revelation. This book is a distillation and condensation
of years of rich experience of one who has the gift of learning from it. Unlike
most books that deal with management, this one is relevant to managers
at every level, from bottom to top, top to bottom, and sideways. It
deals with the interactions of managers at different and the same levels
and their interactions with others. It takes a systemic view of management
and focuses on interactions, not actions. It deals with almost every
aspect of management at every level of an organization. As a result, the
book is firm and very tightly packed. Therefore, a complete reading
should not be attempted at one sitting. Time to absorb and reflect on the
material presented is essential.
