The smaller the function, the greater the management.

C. Northcote Parkinson

"Top" management is supposed to be a tree full of owls-hooting when management heads into the wrong part of the forest. I'm still unpersuaded they even know where the forest is.

Robert Townsend

I don't think a manager should be judged by whether he wins the pennant, but by whether he gets the most out of the twenty-five men he's been given.

Chuck Tanner

A good manager is a man who isn't worried about his own career but rather the careers of those who work for him.

H. S. M. Burns

Some people asked me if I would be interested in managing the A's. I said a definite no thank you. At night, that place is a graveyard with lights.

Whitey Herzog

No business in the world has ever made more money with poorer management.

Bill Terry

American foreign policy must be more than the management of crisis. It must have a great and guiding goal: to turn this time of American influence into generations of democratic peace.

George W. Bush

Successful emergency management relies upon experience and expertise.

Leo Bosner

If the board isn't keeping the association informed and making decisions that are proper for the association, then a management company can't make those decisions or set the agenda or force them to spend money on things that need to be done.

James Strichartz

We had plans in place to expand the management team and he felt he needed to do something on his own.

Peter Doyle

Thermal management is a major challenge to increasing a laser's power.

Yulin Wang

Divorced from ethics, leadership is reduced to management and politics to mere technique.

James Macgregor Burns

They said they were investing in their growth, which is something we pay management to do. The fact that the market takes this perverse view is baffling.

Mark Husson

You can't criticize Independence Air's management for trying something, but it was apparent it wasn't working after a month. They should have changed it then, but they were all too busy drinking the Kool-Aid.

Tim Sieber

It's management that spoiled the fruit.

John Wanous

We felt these guys were a good match. We have a financial investor who believes in our strategy, in our management and wants to be in the business.

Jeff Collier

It could be in the form of ownership of properties, equity investments, joint ventures, management contract or franchises.

Stephen Ford

That's a real good example of what emergency management does. The first response I got was, 'You can't do that.' (But) you never hesitate to respond.

Michael Purcaro

It was very convenient for Time Warner management that people are really excited about AOL right now.

Patrick J. Mahoney

You have to pay competitively but usually if someone leaves a company it's not about the money. You leave a company when you are unhappy with the management.

David Cunningham

IT directors and administrators need to look for a comprehensive, all-around solution to data management to bring about corporate governance, compliance and efficient storage management.

Dianne Mcadam

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.

Peter F. Drucker

One of biggest drivers in commitment to the company is trust in senior management. You may like your boss but you're whole career is not working for one boss.

Ilene Gochman

So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.

Peter F. Drucker

We're really aggressive about energy management. The less electricity you have to use, the less you have to generate. Renewable energy is great, but if you don't even have to use that, that's better.

Luke Cartin

If artificial barriers are necessary to keep employees dedicated to company goals, then that's an indicator of weak management.

Michael Robertson

We have a strong interest in Richie. Negotiations are on-going with his management - we are not in a hurry.

Michael Searle

It was record assets under management, record sales, record earnings per share.

Barry Griswell

We concur with the Joint Election Management Board that the candidates' demand to nullify the election is unjustified.

Robert Barry

Those companies typically have small IT staffs and they typically haven't made a lot of investment in management tools.

Kenny Frerichs

The fact that the deal now is finally negotiated is good news, as management can now focus on core activities.

Robert Heberger

It shows that there is proper management, and it's also our state animal.

Jim Slinsky

We think we can revolutionize health care management in the same way, by providing automation and electronic access to data in an easy-to-understand way.

Dan Levin

Based on McDonald's business performance, shareholders have demonstrated continued confidence in McDonald's management and strategic direction.

Anna Rozenich

This is an agency that is very difficult to work for right now. They're out to intimidate the workforce and assert these management rights.

Doug Church

If management cannot identify what their employees do and do not know, how can they support them to do their job effectively?

Scott Sharp

And they had restaurant management. Their classes were a lot more specific. And their electives blew us out of the water.

Ashley Mason

We still struggle with it. I still feel like I'm new (at asthma management), ... You never know what's around the corner. I still haven't gotten the hang of it.

Derek Johnson

We're getting in their face. And I'm sure it's not very popular with management.

Todd Young

SASAC will decide whether to set up asset-management companies according to the development.

Li Rongrong

We are looking for employers with a large employee base and job diversity, not only in entry level but for professional and management, as well.

You can't really fix the operations unless you fix the management.

James O'connor

We think it is a great plan and we're very supportive of the company and management and look forward to the execution of their program.

Bill Ackman

We are very pleased to have Roger join our board of directors. With his international and management expertise, Roger will bring a wealth of experience to our board that will help us continue to grow our business globally.

John Haley

What people are looking for is confirmation from management that they believe corporate IT spending is getting better.

Bill Fearnley

If I had a normal job and had been moving up, I'd be management level now.

Lauren Graham

I hate to get back on the road. We're tired of traveling. We've had enough hotel management classes.

Don Maestri

Youth are our future and the future of hunting and fishing. It is important that we pass down to them the importance of good hunting and fishing ethics and quality management.

Bruce Compton

That's one contribution to this team that's greatly appreciated. Management has seen the steps that we need and they're making them. I know our linebackers will be happy.

Bobbie Williams

You want to bet on the management team.

Geoffrey Smith

For a few pennies that we lose, let's keep management of the state parks for the future and everything else.

Ray Martin

It's not necessarily to speculate on rates at this level. It's more risk management.

Mustafa Chowdhury

I'm sure he was upset at management.

Michael Biasotti

Looking at his previous record ... he has some anger-management issues.

Dennis Barry

OS/2 was a superior product that was clearly well ahead of Windows in functionality, management, single logon and drivers, at least through Windows 2.X.

David Passmore

I was working my way up through management so I could get my own store, ... Then they invited me to go out with them. It was a big deal that a lot of people wanted.

Cowboy Troy

The results in this department reflects a high level of officer enthusiasm to do their job, and that leadership comes from the management of this department, which includes myself.

Bernard Parks

This guidance helps make sure that adequate management controls are in place to ensure that taxpayers' dollars are spent efficiently and responsibly.

David H. Safavian

There's a lot of faith and confidence in this management team. This may be more change in executive suite than investors are happy to see.

David Berry

Cutting some management and fluff will not hurt our children.

Mike Bidwell

It is going to be controlled somehow. Hunting is basically free management for communities and the state.

Keith Warnke

There are fewer than a dozen management employees at the facility since production ended last week. (These remaining employees are helping) with remaining work involved in the closure of the facility.

Jill Saletta

Based on what we've looked at, we feel we have to make ... management changes and the best way to do this is to start with a fresh team.

James Roche

I don't want to portray myself as a hard man in management or anything like that.

Stuart Pearce

I?m not surprised but impressed with the level of emotional maturity out of these kids. They have all grown since last year. They?re more conscious of course management and more patient golfers.

Ron Kanaskie

Polk County hasn't done one thing about this guy since he got out of prison. I'm doing case management, not them.

Marilyn Callahan

The conditions for establishing assets management companies have matured in China.

Li Rongrong

There has been a shakeup of upper management at Division 11.

Sally Daly

This affiliation is very important for us. The campus would not agree to have just another school of management. We either had to aspire to be significant and have an impact or they wouldn't do it at all.

Robert Sullivan

If the company has had good returns, voting with management is easier to explain to investors.

Bill Atwood

Bill's extensive management, planning and construction experience will be a great asset to the Clark during this time of growth. We are pleased he has joined our staff and look forward to his contributions.

Michael Conforti

Where Solaris does better is in the area of multiprocessing and feature set. There are also more things you can get with Solaris, such as backup and management utilities.

David Van Beveren

Also, you increased some effort to collect funds. You collected taxes before they go delinquent. We continue to see very good management of your budget process.

Laurie Smith

Management is nothing more than motivating other people.

Lee Iacocca

Ironically enough, the management team has engineered a certain amount of solidarity by keeping pay so low.

Paul Lackie

The key will be how much they invest and what role and control they have over underwriting activities and management. They've got about A$350 million ($260 million) to A$500 million to invest.

Peter Vann

We had no findings, no management letter and no exit items.

Sue Curtis

People have to be paid and they're either paid by commission or other investment management fee.

Jim Stone

There's a difference between the criminal standard and the management standard.

Carla Blanton

It's not just an issue of revenue source, it's an issue of good management.

David Metz

They're really applying the principles of entrepreneurial management even if they're not making a profit.

Josh Lerner

Our capacity management and divestiture efforts, coupled with a rigid financial discipline, are having a favorable impact on our performance and will continue.

John Dillon

They left two years ago. There's a new management team in place.

Kevin Buttigieg

They were having some difficulty getting this deal done because the company is very highly leveraged. It's a very risky deal, and if it weren't for the superstar management team, no one would pay attention to it.

Irv Degraw

The numbers aren't good at all, especially because of the costs. Even without what was recently disclosed, investment banking, wealth and. Asset management and even non-life insurance looks heavy on costs.

Javier Lodeiro

Management is concerned about return on invested capital and return on shareholder equity and that's the focus. Everything else takes a backseat to that.

Richard Hastings

This is not a see-saw. This is major shift in labor-management relations.

Terry Trippler

As a management team, we did lie.

David Delainey

This transaction will significantly add to the expertise of ABN AMRO Asset Management's fund of hedge funds management capacity and will enable ABN AMRO Asset Management to broaden our best-of-breed funds and bespoke products to our clients.

Sarah Russell

I have to ill feeling toward (the Red Sox). But I'd like to do well. I'd like to show management they made a mistake.

Alan Embree

The Expo focuses on designing a project and working with somebody. It's more of a contact management business than pure retail.

Curtis Chambers

There is a very extensive review process for all that material, and management should and does stand behind it.

Dennis Roth

The IT industry is not known for the best management practices, and increased competition means working to deadlines.

Cary Cooper

There's a convergence going on in Internet online financial service offerings -- adding cash management functionality to their clients. They can't live on trades alone.

Dan Burke

For the ECB it's about inflation risk management rather than inflation fighting. That's a crucial difference. If it was about fighting inflation, he could be much more aggressive and pre-commit.

Rainer Guntermann

Focus on costs and asset management clearly remains the best course, given the fragile market conditions.

Gerard Kleisterlee

Effective management always means asking the right question.

Robert Heller

We might have to see if we could find another partner as a management company.

Bob Rice

Intel takes power management very seriously, especially in our mobile platforms.

Connie Brown

The name of the game in flood management.

Joe Beal

Your August 9 e-mail, which indicated that you and management would not talk to us at this time, was disappointing and not representative of best practices of corporate governance.

Michael Mcconnell

You have to assume that in any hazelnut orchard in Oregon, it's there. It's the No. 1 concern in the industry in terms of pest management.

Jeff Olsen

It's clearly an issue. Performance fees will come and go, but the assets they manage have also grown so base management fees will increase.

Rob Patterson

New Zealand could be an area to surprise on the upside given recent management changes.

Jeff Emmanuel

Iacocca was the best-selling business biography in history. Before that we had Peter Drucker, the inventor of modern management.

Jeff Krames

The police estimate is between $600,000 to $700,000. To save $50,000, we spent how much? It's a sad chapter in the management of our government. It's very sad that this happened.

Dan Moran

It's really a software management system that can be either nationwide or geographically targeted.

Dennis Specht

We know The Hotel Management Group is the best choice to manage IHG hotels, because we know our brands, our systems, our marketing, our standards, our demand and our revenue generators better than anyone else.

Tom Murray

We of course hope to settle the conflict before then. Management will do what it can to avoid a strike that would affect our Easter traffic.

Siv Meisingseth

Proposed new laws do away with all of that and instead look at the responsibility of senior management as a whole.

Magnus Burrough

That was huge of management. And give Paul a lot of credit to come to a team with not a lot of well-known guys. But he saw an opportunity to join an up- and-coming team and help build a winner.

Scott Walker

Anything that is wasted effort represents wasted time. The best management of our time thus becomes linked inseparably with the best utilization of our efforts.

Ted W. Engstrom

Maybe the point wasn't driven completely home with Challenger, but it certainly was with Columbia. It certainly seems that the senior management gets it. Whether it has filtered down to everyone involved ... it's a bureaucracy, and it probably never will, but there are some changes.

Keith Cowing

One of the many fun things I find is that there are a lot more women in management here than in western Europe.

Aaron Meyer

They became the poster boys and girls for good public management and good government.

Bill Waugh

Our management comes from the video game perspective, and that is what we bring.

Chris Gilbert

Because I know they are in the top tier, I have a scorecard for those suppliers and top management meetings.

Bob Currey

We have evidence of compensation to top management when, as far as I know, firemen and police of the city got no extra bonuses for doing worse, more grotesque work.

Richard Brodsky

I must say I enjoyed team management. I was fortunate to have a good squad of lads under me.

Naul Mccole

The auditors will look at that and the entire software program and always find something, then report it to management. If anything is out of line, we're going to find it.

Andrew Beveridge

Investors aren't giving management the benefit of the doubt on much of anything at the moment and this is probably deserved.

Timothy Anderson

We think the prior management has been so incompetent that bringing in competent management has the potential to make dramatic improvements.

Gary Robinson

We are in contact with our management team there, but we are still trying to track down our employees, ... We have heard from about half of them.

Bill Duffy

We work on financial literacy, money management. We strive to get them the best interest rate.

Rod Williams

Management is doing the right thing. You don't want to change the driver of the horse when the strategy is clearly appropriate.

Larry Haverty

They can contact our traffic management division at 455-6100. We'd take their concerns and issues and put it on a list to study.

Bobby Shelton

We put in three goals in under two minutes due to good clock management, smart lacrosse and a lot of heart.

Ben Gliklich

Practice Golden-Rule 1 of Management in everything you do. Manage others the way you would like to be managed.

Brian Tracy

We believe management is being conservative and could deliver upside to the estimate for the fiscal year.

Dan Renouard

Smart hasn't developed as planned, and it's no secret the two sets of management didn't always see eye to eye.

John Lawson

The aggregate system is a big-picture approach that creates an exceptional management framework. Everything is connected ? from designing a product, to making it, to selling it.

Steve Sanghi

We are pleased to add the management of the Clarington Canadian Balanced Fund to our growing list of institutional mandates.

Allan Smith

Investors should remember that if we do see companies start hitting estimates and not beating them, that wouldn't be such a bad thing. It would mean there's less earnings management going on.

Joseph Abbott

Ms. Kaczynski felt that management failed to keep the board informed of important issues facing the company or failed to do so in a timely fashion.

Bruce Baird

It makes sense for McDonald's to focus their top management efforts on the Golden Arches.

Carl Sibilski

The debt management plan is really a repayment plan.

Deanne Loonin

The different treatment that top management are getting in companies relative to the work force has been the catalyst.

Chris Hart

Is Green Bay unique to the world, where there is this management utopia in place?

John Crotty

What we are doing here is pushing it forward in terms of the management and logistics.

William Aldis

I had to do a lot of paperwork for the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the county, pay vendors, gather food for people and a lot more.

Linda Mcdermott

Michael is starting to get real consistent. His course management is really good.

Jody Ault

It's no longer about strategic development. It's about financial management.

Michael Diekmann

The most important part of this initiative ... is how to get the public actively involved in mule deer management. We've got to (let the public know) why we don't have - and may not ever have - those deer numbers again like the '50s and '60s.

Daryl Lutz

We have spoken with management and there are currently no plans for an pre-announcement, as business appears to be tracking in line with expectations.

Rick Sherlund

For CEOs today, it's all about achieving growth and efficiency through innovation. It's not about product innovation so much anymore as about innovating business models, process, culture and management.

Ginni Rometty

In our view, management was setting the stage for the possibility of losses in the current downturn.

Byron Walker

If sufficient number of management layers are superimposed on top of each other, it can be assured that disaster is not left to chance.

Norman R. Augustine

Our life, asset management and general insurance businesses all achieved better results, helped by the inclusion of acquisitions.

Bob Scott

We absolutely think that we can get a deal done if management is serious about reaching a comprehensive agreement.

John Culp

It all comes down to good communication. Environmental Management and the industry have worked out some good compromises.

Kate King

The one part that they get you is 'anything deemed by management to be inappropriate,' and obviously, this was inappropriate to them.

Mike Allenbaugh

That ticket holders were refused entry for two days continuously reflects the (Disneyland) management is lack of the capability to adapt to changing situation. The management is disappointing.

Ming Pao

That's very unlikely here. The management are all new and weren't here in the times this happened. They are not to blame for this. They have done the right thing to come clean.

Maurice Kidd

We are convinced that it's come to this because the South Florida Management District and for that matter the Corps have shown a consistent bias and unfairness for decades.

Brendan Morrison

I want to be in a great FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) program. I also want to major in Business Management, so I want to make sure the school has a good business program. And lastly, I want to be able to get a long with the coaches. That is about it.

Andre Smith

We believe year-end redemptions drove a 10% decline in average assets under management to $3 billion.

Richard Repetto

I think the extent to which that happens depends on how much of the top management would be retained.

Lou Marino

No one who was running the 401(k) seemed to have our interests at heart; at every turn, they seemed to be making decisions that were in the best interests of Enron, not employees. That's why we got nothing but lies from the management of Enron.

Dary Ebright

It's a psychological milestone for the Street if only because it was the one achievable thing that management set out to do earlier this year.

Scott Reamer

With the Lucio Tan group gaining sole control of PNB, it is unlikely that there will be any change in the composition of the bank's highly professional and competent management team.

Lucio Tan

We recorded the same line. I did it better than him but his management kicked up a stink and he is going to do it again today.

Justin Hawkins

The micro-management issue is a huge one for the phone companies.

Jeff Leiper

The risk management program we have is the same as Pearl City, and Pearl City was judged by the judge as being a solid program.

Peter Flynn

The warning letter is a clear negative for Guidant and adds to its near-term challenges in its [cardiac rhythm management] franchise.

Tao Levy

Our field inspectors were writing everything down and nothing was being captured. So we were looking to do performance management and live data capture. The PDA was chosen over a laptop because it was cheaper.

Jay Marshall

He's committed to working with us to reduce his management staff.

Jim Flynn

It is a traffic management device. It is done to expedite traffic. It is expensive to put in an electronic toll collection system.

Neil Gray

We were a championship team before the slide, but the management was committed to rebuilding the team.

Yeng Guiao

Population growth is not respecting water-management-district boundaries.

Colleen Castille

Some at Fidelity in top management view it as a concern.

Christine Benz

Now there's another layer of management that has to approve things. We'll just have to hope Home Depot will be the good corporate citizen that Hughes has been.

Brian Butler

Every 10 years the management levels change. In 1960, the management levels were at 60,000 horses and burros. In the mid-1980s, they pushed to get it down to 36,000. Now, 15 to 20 years later, it's 23,000 to 29,000. What that will do is put these horses in jeopardy.

Karen Sussman

As a management team, if you give the college less money than your commitments, you doom it to fail.

Frank Stansberry

The management of the home's physical plant is one major issue for improving the quality of life for an aging population.

Gregory Abowd

It doesn't make sense from a long-term management strategy to allow something to go closer to the beach than what we've been doing.

Bill Eiser

These were not crimes of moral turpitude - they were management issues. This is a cautionary tale. The business of law is as important as the practice of law.

Mark Dubois

Without a proper management plan, there should not be a hunt.

Jeff Tittel

There's lots of pontificating, but this is hard stuff. When a company says it's getting serious about management development, I say great -- just let me see the CEO's calendar.

Noel Tichy

If you push back the clock 25 years, a family enterprise could take the heat. But these days, if the enterprise is genuinely failing, the drumbeat that the board of directors will feel to bring in outside management will become irresistible.

Michael Useem

A strong top line, coupled with strong management and continuing productivity gains and sensible cost management has contributed to a very strong bottom line.

Jon Symonds

Management continues to run the company for long term shareholder return.

John Lawrence

Management has to be where the action is.

Dieter Zetsche

The people at the Bradley Center have been tremendous to work with. Our event management experience certainly comes into play.

Doug Beard

I think we're overdoing management.

Marc Bekoff

Determining when and why this turning point happens is important so governments can encourage improved soil and water management.

Jennifer Olson

There are a lot of accounting issues that have taken place under prior management that haven't gone away and don't appear to be dissipating.

Todd Rosenbluth

I wanted to make sure that the people in the affected areas get every bit of assistance they absolutely need, ... We do that by making sure there's accountability through FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency).

Scott Garrett

This is not just about information. All the information does us no good unless we have the political will to put it to use for good management practices.

Judith Kildow

Anything can happen. I'm just going to play my game and let [management] take care of that.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Minority investors, which would be all American investors, just don't have any leverage to enforce management to act in the best interest of shareholders.

Jay Ritter

We believe our emphasis on people and talent management differentiates Barclays from competitors in the asset management industry, as well as other Bay Area employers in financial services.

Tom Taggart

This acquisition allows us to expand our footprint in this business. This is the premier facility in British Columbia and a natural fit for us. It broadens the range of stages we have available and also brings a lot of management expertise to the company.

Richard Weir

I've got an opinion on everything, so I should go into management.

Richard Gough

There has been stronger-than-expected demand for our products across the board. There is far better inventory management, better capital investment management.

George Scalise

There's simply nothing to that, ... The dynamics in the board of management are absolutely fantastic. This isn't a German or an American thing.

Robert Eaton

My department is again pleased and privileged to host this prestigious police management course.

William Dwyer

Chris' broad expertise in business management will make him a very valuable addition to our management team. He has already begun to make a significant contribution.

Philip Teel

It makes wildlife management pretty difficult.

Don Garner

The editorial management and Flemming Rose have agreed that he needed a break from work until further notice.

Tage Clausen

Senior management knows there's a problem, but it seems that every day the problem gets worse, and it's like there's no end in sight.

Robert Charette
