Hunter on Management Matters 0

John Hunter has been writing about management online since 1995. He has shared ideas on management via his blog, Curious Cat Management Improvement Blog, since 2005 and recently as the new author of the Dr. Deming blog hosted by the W.Edwards Deming Institute.

In John’s new book, Management Matters: Building Enterprise Capability,  he looks at the ideas and principles of people like Dr. Deming, Ackoff, Ohno, Drucker, Scholtes, Joiner and others, explaining how to adopt them in your work. If you think, this book is a re-write of some old principles, I encourage you to listen to the podcast. John, though he credits the others, has fresh perspectives on how to integrate new technology and new ideas to manage organizations more effectively.

This is a transcription of the podcast, Management Matters to a Curious Cat.


You can listen to a short portion of audio where John discussed adding two new deadly diseases of management: excessive executive compensation and an outdated intellectual property system, Dr. Deming’s 7 Deadly Diseases + 2. This section is not part of the podcast below.
