Management Ghosts of Past, Present, and Future

Most of us have heard of the Christmas  Ghosts of Past, Present and Future  but almost no one hears of them as applied to management. Before a manager takes an action they should think of how it fits within these three contexts.

Past: What is the history and culture of the organization? Will your decisions fit within the context of the past and can people connect with it now?

Present: What do you need to do and say now? Are there actions that need to be completed? What type of resources do you have.

Future: A few years down the road your decisions will have an impact. Do you know how it will strengthen or weaken long-term goals? Does it give you the most options?
