Hard Work and Efficient Management = Success? LO28307

Replying to LO28282 --

Dr. Dash gave a nice "thought" on At's "re-representation" of a speech. It
is quite easy for the "man' with "outside of the particular organization
wisdom" to comment with "Best Efforts Are Nough Enough" ( Dr. Deming's
words) or even Einstein's "different levesl of thought-actions".

Yes, victories in several battles might not win the war. Most consultants
have some stories to share with in the area of subopitimization.
Neverthess, I think there are some essential temsion here and the
"conrext" is quite important but quite difficult to re-accounting them.
That means,on the other hand, T. Edison's famed "1% insperation"
hard-working made him quite "successful" in certain cases. There are some
other elaborated points here in certain cases, please see W. Mark Furin's
Knowledge's Works : Managing Intellectual Capital at Toshiba (OUP, 1997).
