What is The Basic Test of All Administrative Solutions?

“There are right ways to handle a group. This is the single fact which most often escapes people attempting to handle groups.

“Also, for every correct solution there can be infinity of wrong solutions. The right way is a narrow trail but strong. The wrong ways are broad but all lead into a bog. This is the basic test of all administrative solutions. DID THEY WORK?”1

The Natural Laws of Management: Delegate Does Not Mean Dump

It is supremely important that the executive concentrates on those activities that only he or she can do from his or her vantage point.

The effective action to ensure this occurrence on any regular basis is often short-circuited, made expedient. Functions that indeed do belong outside of the executive office, more profitably done elsewhere, are not formally delegated but unceremoniously dumped.

A “function dump” might well be defined as passing off a function to another without having insured by direct observation or other means that the individual receiving the function not only fully understands its purpose and value, but in fact has demonstrated his or her ability to actually accomplish the function.

But, you say, “this takes time.  It is so much easier to simply dump it”. I’m reminded of the old saying, “You can pay me now or you can pay me later”. You are going to put in the delegation training time and it is best to do it before you start, rather than after you have begun delegating–only to find that it is necessary to redo much of what you have passed on.

An executive conundrum to consider— why is it we never have the time to do it right, but we always find the time to do it over?

What Are “The Natural Laws of Management”?

Chapter 2 “NATURAL LAW” – Page 9

“Basic administrative truths exist. We could call such truths ‘natural laws’. If one knows the laws, one has an advantage. The ancient samurai warrior believed that by knowing one thing, you could know many things. The one thing to know is the law.

“If you find that there is a non-optimum business or life situation, then there must be a violation of some law. So what do you do? You look up the law, you review the law and then you apply the correct solution and handle the situation, standardly.

“IF ONE KNOWS THE TECH OF HOW TO DO SOMETHING AND CAN DO IT, AND USES IT, HE CANNOT BE THE ADVERSE EFFECT OF IT.”1
