darth vader’s management secrets February 2, 2008

Posted by That Guy in Management, Seen Elsewhere.

Once in a while — though less so now thanks to the power of the internet — someone comes along, takes an iconic film, and applies its lessons to the real world. Someone at Stepcase Lifehack has done just that with Darth Vader’s Management Secrets. My personal favorite:

Finally, always remember that an elaborate, far-reaching plan, which relies on people reacting exactly how you plan for them to react, is always better than a simple plan. Nothing illustrates your genius quite like a meticulous, detailed, super-plan which will go horribly awry if people don’t react exactly the way you think they will. Just know who to blame when things don’t go the way you expect them to.

That’s modern corporate management if I ever saw it.
