Here are some thought provoking sayings from a cybersecurity class I took recently (you decide whether these are true for your organization):
- Organizational Power: "He who controls the budget, billets, and IT controls the organization."
- Micromanagement: "There is no greater enabler of micromanagement than information technology [and a crappy manager]."
- Getting to a Decision: "A non-decision is a decision."
- Managing Performance: "An organization is not well-suited to collecting data about itself."
- Mission and Personal Focus: "If you try to be everything to everybody, you end up being nothing to nobody."
