I shall assume from the start that it is a manager's duty and desire to make the enterprise for which he is responsible ever more efficient and effective. There are many reasons why he should do so - such as the United Kingdom's desperate need for higher productivity, the need to make a profit, the fact that the whole enterprise may otherwise go bankrupt (not a bad reason in itself), and that no manager worth his salt can achieve any personal satisfaction if the job for which he is responsible is not running well and effectively - but these reasons are side issues to us now.
