Management Lesson: How to put the right ppl in the right job

Thursday, September 22, 2005

Here a good management joke... yeah yeah... it's been awhile since I done this too! Anyways, here's an experiment for you to try. This is particularly for Companies who have a problem putting the right person to the right job.

Required resources:
100 bricks
2-3 candidates
1 closed room with an open window


Directions
Put 100 bricks in no particular order in the room. Then send candidates into the room and close it from outside. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours, and then analyze the situation.

Checklist
If they are counting and recounting the number of bricks - PUT THEM IN ACCOUNTS DEPT.

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks - PUT THEM IN ENGINEERING

If they are arranging the bricks in some other order - PUT THEM IN PLANNING.

If they are throwing the bricks at each other - PUT THEM IN OPERATIONS.

If they are sleeping - PUT THEM IN SECURITY.

If they have broken the bricks into pieces - PUT THEM IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY.

If they are sitting idle - PUT THEM IN HUMAN RESOURCE DEPT.

If they have thrown the bricks out of the window - PUT THEM IN THE MATERIALS DEPT.

If they are clinging onto the bricks - PUT THEM IN TREASURY.

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has moved - PUT THEM IN SALES.

If they have already left for the day - PUT THEM IN MARKETING.

If they are staring out of the window - PUT THEM IN STRATEGIC PLANNING

AND finally....

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved - PUT THEM IN TOP MANAGEMENT.
