Warning: This entry is a very LONG essay on management. I know not everyone is interested.
Its been a long 2 year campaign to finally elect Barack Obama but he succeeded and many attribute this to how he managed his campaign. Despite what everyone sees as a lack of experience, I think he showed management skills better than Hillary Clinton did. Hopefully this skills should translate into being a great President (I hope). Newsweek wrote a long story about the details of every campaign and from it I took out parts where Obama showed where his management skills trounced Hillary’s.
During the campaign Obama showed that he could:
- Set Clear Management Objectives
- Be a Conciliatory Manager of a Team of Rivals
- Relentlessly Self Improve
- Do Not Play the Blame Game
