Management information and statistics
The JC sounds off on Management
The simplistic lens through which the upper echelons understand the grubby whole. The surest sign that an organisation has gone past its optimal size and is slipping into middle-aged spread. If its executives need MIS to understand how the business is getting on — to make it “legible” — it’s a fair bet the business is too big, unwieldy and complicated. If you need MIS, you’re part of the problem.
