Les maximes du management moderne

Management_1(Elles sont trop belles en anglais et je suis un trop mauvais traducteur,
alors je vous les livre telles quelles:)

  • Rome did not create a great empire by having meetings,
    they did it by killing all those who opposed them.

  • If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...
    then you probably haven't completely understood
    the seriousness of the situation....

  • Doing a job RIGHT the first time gets the job done. Doing the job WRONG fourteen times gives you job security.

  • Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

  • Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity

  • A person who smiles in the face of adversity... probably has a scapegoat.

  • Plagiarism saves time.

  • If at first you don't succeed, try management.

  • Never put off until tomorrow what you can avoid altogether.

  • TEAMWORK... means never having to take all the blame yourself.

  • The beatings will continue until morale improves.

  • Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups.

  • We waste time, so you don't have to.

  • Hang in there, retirement is only thirty years away!

  • Go the extra mile. It makes your boss look like an incompetent slacker.

  • A snooze button is a poor substitute for no alarm clock at all.

  • When the going gets tough, the tough take a coffee break.


  • Succeed in spite of management.

  • Aim Low, Reach Your Goals, Avoid Disappointment.

  1. Chouette liste.
    J'avais une variante pour celle ci :
    "If at first you don't succeed, try management"
    "If you can't do, teach. If you can't teach, consult..."

  2. >AlainF: voir l'entrée Consultant de mon Dictionnaire impertinent des branchés et son histoire du berger.

  3. Bien vu !
    Je ferai un lien lors d'un prochain billet à propos du consultant/consulting

  4. Ptit jeu : remplaçons certains mots par d'autres.
    A la première citation, je remplacerais "Rome" par "Microsoft" ;-)
