On the Substance of Work

Tags management, WATT, work

“A Company hires people to do things.
A Company hires people to manage things.
Smart People pay people who manage to do the important well.”

This Twitter tweet-sized tidbit from the Human Gravity on the substance of work is worthy of a short post of its own.

It has a ring to it.

As the author I allow you the right to replace “Company” with anything from this list:

Government
School
Firm
Institution
Business
Hospital
Organization
and perhaps my favorite
My boss

You could make the expressions political and/or politically sexual but that’s a different matter best left for another day.

Feel free to comment and leave your own personal additions to the list…
