Basic model for an effective MVMT Maker

Drucker’s basic model for an effective executive can be summarized as follows:

  • one, executives must carefully choose how to spend, and not to spend, their time;
  • two, executives must consciously choose what they want to contribute to the organization and ask their subordinates to make such a choice also;
  • three, executives must choose people to perform tasks based on their individual strengths and the fit between strengths and tasks–people should not be chosen for whether or not they lack weaknesses;
  • four, executives must deliberately choose long-term business priorities; and
  • five, executives must choose from among all of the alternative opinions offered within their organization.

UPDATE:

In 2012, I’ll be offering a group class covering my thoughts and practices related to this subject. I’ll offer the first class on Jan 2, 2012 for free! If you want in, and will be in Oakland, CA please email me at rolando@mvmt.com.

Registration will be simple. It will be a 5 hour day, you will walk away with something concrete to move forward with, and free lunch will be provided. All are welcomed, though I’m sure the majority of the room will be people ritually engaged in social change work / movement building.

Thanks!
