If the Management 2.0 wonks want to create a stir, it can be a healthy thing if it results in a greater number of managers acknowledging that we have (mostly) been doing it wrong and that we can put into practice sound principles that were available to us all along. I would welcome a perspective that embraces the duality of management: the hard stuff (systematic approach) and the soft stuff (it's all about the people). I also hope most would see that, as others have said, it's the soft stuff that is actually hard but has enormous power to transform our workplaces.

So true. We ignore great ideas in search of new magical ideas. Most of which are even less useful than magic. At least magic just doesn't work. Many new management ideas actually do harm.
