Leadership Excellence Essentials;Feb2011, Vol. 28 Issue 2, p13
The article focuses on the need to reinvent management in light of what experts believe as failure of traditional management in allowing organizations to be run by managers and leaders whose respective competencies are different and at times conflicting. It cites a 2010 study by Deloitte involving 20,000 U.S. companies that shows declining performances in key areas as compared to 1965 levels. It urges managers to evolve and develop into leaders who can motivate, innovate, and effect change.
