Organizational Time
       - Monkey Management!
Types of Time
• BOSS – imposed time

• System – imposed time

• Self – imposed time
Boss - imposed time
• Time we spend in doing things, we would not be
  doing if we did not have bosses.
• Golden Rule of Management
    “Those who have the GOLD make the RULES”
• Always do what your boss wants
  – If you don’t like what your boss wants, change what
    your boss wants, but always do what your boss wants!
  – If you always agree with your boss, one of you is not
    necessary
Boss – imposed time
• Loyal opposition
  – when you try to convince your boss to accept
    some better alternatives; but failing that, always
    wholeheartedly do what he or she wants.

• Satisfying your boss takes time, but failing to
  invest sufficient time to satisfy the boss will
  result in more and more boss imposed time.
• We neglect doing these things at our peril.
System – imposed time
• Time we spend with on other than our bosses
  and our own staffs, demands that are part of
  every organization.
• It includes completion of administrative forms,
  meetings, phone calls you must handle etc
• Organization system work in mysterious ways.
  Make sure you are friends with people in each
  department or at least know someone who is
  willing to help you.
• Spend some time knowing people who run admin
  / organizational systems
Self – imposed time
• Time we spend in doing things we decided to
  do.
• This is the most important time. It is the only
  time we have discretion to express our own
  individuality within an organization.
• It is only with the self imposed time we make
  our own unique contribution to an
  organization.
Self – imposed time
• It comes in two categories
   – Discretionary time
   – Subordinate imposed time
• Discretionary is the most vital time of all, it is,
  unfortunately, the first to disappear when pressure is
  on.
• Don’t comply with bosses’ wishes – guilty of
  insubordination.
• Don’t comply with system’s requirement – guilty of
  noncooperation.
• If don’t keep your promises, when we picked
  someone’s monkeys – guilty of procrastination
Self imposed time
• Swift and obvious penalties pursue those who
  treat other people’s requirements in a light-
  hearted, cavalier fashion!

• Start by subordinate imposed time!
  – Ensure that you are not picking up someone’s monkey.
  – Subordinates can not impose extra monkeys on you
    without your cooperation, but bosses and peers will
    do so if you ignore their requirements
System
• Organizational systems are rarely simple!
  – Instead of criticizing and resenting the imperfect
    system apply the following philosophy
     “It is better to strike a straight blow with a crooked stick
       than spending your whole life trying to straighten the
       damn thing out”
