Woe Canada: Rather than rise from the ashes, IBM-built C$1bn Phoenix payroll system is going down in flames

Re: The History Goes Back Further Than That

The disease that managers only need to know how to manage and have no idea of the area they are managing pops up everywhere!

In my 70 years I have only come across 3 genuine managers (and hundreds of fakers) themost impressive of whom told the MD of the company publicly "not to f*ck him around, as he had been f*cked around by professionals".

Surprisingly, he was not fired or "punished" in any way.

Was it because he was actually an asset to the company who got things done?
