People Management

although we have left out the People Management in KM & AM.
I believed, found throuh research that it is indeed the People Management which leads to the maximum utilization of Knowledge management.

Further than that, i believe now what one colleague of mine said earlier during the LE module that Leaders are those who have followers. Although there is certain degree to which i agree now, i firmly believe that a leader cannot achieve the vision he so professes without a dedicated management team which is there to follow, a leader needs support as he cannot at times (generally most of the times) carry out all individual minute details of the process.

I currently am experiencing this concern once again, the same issue i dealt with during my under-grad.


A leader not being able to provide a strategy, and followers not assisting in the development of a strategy.
Furthermore, followers not following for no particular reason.
Followers requiring extensive time to understand the problem at hand.
Followers not coming with solutions but rather more problems which they foresee.


It is more important to choose a team which supports and follows than it is to pursue an idea all alone

    stages of EFQM framework have made learn a lot of aspects which need to be taken into consideration while forming an organization or while an organization is changing its structure to lean towards a learning organization. . .

    a leader has more to play for while the followers are engaged…

    The hard fact is that usually you aren’t able to choose your team for various reasons. Therefore, you have to do the best you can with what you already have. I know it’s more than difficult to achieve that and some times there might be no time to try to engage all members or to make everyone follow you. Then what are you going to do? Resort at your positional power because it’s easy? Or will you try with other means? Being a team member is not easy, no matter what is your role, leader or follower…
