I worked as business manager for AEG-Telefunken, Honeywell, Bedaux Consulting and Hewlett Packard and then turned to consulting.
One development was constant during all these years: acceleration. First, driven by management methodologies like MbO, TQM, HOSHIN, KANBAN,... Then, boosted by information technology and the Internet.
Managers must upgrade their mindset to business agility. To lead in short operational sprints, firmly focusing on the prime business goal: enough income to sustain the business today and tomorrow.
