What are the challenges for the New Managers in the New Millennium?
For now, Transition.
From analogue to digital. From mechanical to technical. From older bosses with younger employees to younger bosses with both older employees and younger employees.
A faster pace. From the letter, to the fax, to the email, to the iPhone to the iPad.
A faster pace in the barrage of questions and a demand for a faster reply with answers.
Precision. Then, a little more, a little less, a couple of shims and a few extra screws. Now, a digital answer with the engineer's zero. 6.54 is not acceptable. Now the answer must read 6.540
A compelling necessity for senior level expertise. Sometimes you cannot delegate responsibility. With the abundance of expertise, recognising the quality among the quantity is crucial. Now find the person on your team capable of doing it.
Global interface. With so much coming from so many different people in so many different places, try to find someone capable of working with them.
Just to mention a few.
