You Can Drive A Horse To Water But Not If You're Using Dead Horse Management

This article is really quite funny.

Dead Horse Management is not a phrase I've heard before. Obviously it relates to "you can't flog a dead horse" but even so ...

THe nutshell of it is that you should realise that when your horse is dead (ie idea, approach, way of managing doesn't work) you should stop managing it. Otherwise you're a Dead Horse Manager.

I'm sure you've seen this in your working life. I certainly have. It seems particularly prevalent when a dynamic organisation takes over a more staid one.

The "We don't do it that way here" syndrome kicks in. But it maybe that way is a dead horse! And even the reason why they were taken over too.

So watch out for any dead horses, get off them quick.
