INVENTION AND INNOVATION
3Cs in the course Complexity Situations that are difficult to understand, have considerable ambiguity and uncertainty, and often have no “solutions,” only options and tradeoffs Chaos Seemingly random events that have an underlying pattern (which is difficult to discern) Change turbulent environments in which the future is difficult to predict or control VUCA
What it means to be a MANAGER Manager and his work ‘Long white beard’ or ‘universal genius’? Managing Resources- people, time, information Making Decisions Essentially what a manager does Manager of tomorrow New demands-New tasks-but no new men ! Preparation is the key

True Managers are born not made! The great debate… 9
What Researches have to say on This BORN (Nature)MADE (Nurture) Some are born with an “extra something,” a trait of tenacity and take-over-ship that makes them “natural born Managers.” Eg Einstien As with people like Winston Churchill or Franklin Roosevelt, those who exhibit leadership traits early on — even when born into a privileged lifestyle — don’t become leaders by accident. They’re made into leaders, or they make themselves into one. Born-leaning managers may embrace a dominant and authority-focused approach to Management; they may view asking for many opinions or seeking consensus as weak or ineffective Management Executives who believe Management are made may prefer a more-collaborative approach; being dominant and focused on rules and formalities may be less effective with them Management training is three times more effective at teaching knowledge than it is in changing behavior. Fifty six percent of corporate managers predict shortages in executive-level Managers. Fourty four percent of companies expect to increase total spending on management development and executive education. Sixty four percent of learning executives say they are focusing on trying to speed up the Management development process.
