Chasing Management Techniques
Every management technique suffers from its own law of diminishing returns. The
more that a technique is used, the less effective it becomes. The originality of a
technique is often enough to get positive results from personnel and to inspire
duplication. By the time that a technique has become popular, its marginal benefits
over any other technique have typically become negligible. Late comers to the
technique usually are dissatisfied in the results and soon are pursuing the next touted
The best techniques are those that are custom fitted to the manager, the personnel, the
environment and the time. Although even these techniques need to be reviewed and
adjusted over time, the customization in itself provides for a longer productive life-span
for the technique.
