Re: CDO turf
I agree with you it is very hard and takes a lot of planning to implement new things without changing operations...

Re: CDO turf
I agree with you, SaneIT.

 

I had never heard of a CDO before, and I am of the same opinion; the CIO bucket. How many more C's can they add to the suite?

Re: CDO turf
I won't call all C level or middle managers flab and I will be careful about saying you could fire management and not affect production.  A good manager will free up employees to do their jobs more efficiently and will inspire them to great things.  If you cut that manager in the name of reducing redundancies then you'll probably regret it.  I just see a bubble forming at the executive level the way we saw a bubble around middle management a decade or so ago.  Companies have to be careful when they are defining positions.

Re: CDO turf
I think for some people this is a natural tendency but for others who don't feel threatened then the feeling is more of a supporting nature.  I know I can't do everything by my self so I make sure I have people around who can fill the gaps or cover for me when I'm gone.  I know that if an employer doesn't want me around there are not a lot of obstacles in their way to get rid of me so being hard to work with and giving them one more reason is just a bad idea.

Re: CDO turf
Waqas,

You raised an interesting point here.

While it may be true that there is an Ample Supply of Human Talent in the Job Market today from an Employer Perspective;the fact that every single time someone new comes on the Scene one needs to re-train and waste enormous Resources and Time in the process is a cost one can't neglect in the Long-run.

It all adds up eventually,so it makes much more sense to take care of the staff you have in place today.

Regards

Ashish.

Re: CDO turf
Right Ashish. The management should be proactive to these problems. Some are always under impression that supply of human resources is in excess so it won't be a problem in finding a replacement from the external market.

@Ashu

I'm glad your thoughts and mine align here. 

It's not the title so much as what you do with it.

Re: CDO turf
SaneIT,

Very true.

I was reading an article in some Business Magazine(I can't remember the name now),which was discussing how a large number of Middle Execs in a good number of Fortune 500 companies are feeling completely stuck or they feel like they have been made redundant because of Automation.

For a Company,these middle Layers of Management (who are mainly paper pushers) are perfect to cut in the name of Cost-cutting.

You lose so much flab without having to worry about performance getting afftected much.

Re: CDO turf
SusanN,

Do you feel that the cases of Practical ,Home-Spun C-Level Execs are now in the Minority?

Does everybody just go simply on the basis of Foolish Titles?

Sad reality if that is certainly the case.

Ashish.
