A Must Read for Managers,
This review is from: Real-World Intelligence (Hardcover)This book is on my MUST READ book for managers and decision makers.
The idea that the person responsible for "intelligence" is ALWAYS in conflict with the decision maker was a real eye opener.
Conflict 1: Gathering information is a continuous process with no end result in sight. Demands for information by decision makers are usually one-time no-warning events.
Conflict 2: If the decision maker hears what he already "knows" or believes to be true, the information is of no value. To provide value, the intel person has to buck the belief of the boss. Not a prescription for career advancement.
