22nd April 2002 - The Effective Executive

In transport to a business meeting today, I managed to read "The Effective Executive" by Peter F. Drucker. This was a good book that dealt with the basics of time management, focus and decision making; the point I noted the most was his defining of the most limiting resources: time, money and people –time is the only resource where supply is totally inelastic! By learning to be effective, executives will be able to make the most out of these resources…

A well written and easy to read executive handbook that is relevant for anybody dealing with decision making throughout organizations.

With regards to my survey, I am still working on refining it based on the feedback from Pat.

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?”
