Jo Owen
"Welcome to the Revolution" exclaimed Jo Owen as he took to the stage at the Lewis Media Centre. His premise: that the world of management is changing and it is now more important than ever to expand your skill set to keep ahead.
Jo defines management as "the art of making things happen through other people" and, with this in mind, set about providing a history of management thinking, taking us up to the present day. He argued that, to begin with, IQ was regarded as the key determinant of being a good manager.
In modern business, Jo argued, managers have '"responsibilities in excess of authority" which makes it less viable to directly control people.
The good news, Jo claimed, is that these skills can all be taught, and he was here to do just that.
