The UK can meet its environmental target to cut greenhouse emissions by 60% over the next 20 years, the Committee on Climate Change reports. However, this will mean completely overhauling the energy sector, with an annual investment of £16bn in the 2020s, and replacing 11 million petrol cars with electric or hybrid equivalents.
The committee chair, Lord Adair Turner, said “The case for action is as strong as ever: climate change science remains robust and suggests there are very significant risks if we do not cut emissions. And countries acting now will gain economic benefits in an increasingly carbon constrained world.”

Since the invention of management over a century ago, management has become detached from both the day to day operation of the organisation and from delivering value to the customers who pay for the products and services provided. Conventional wisdom is that managers set targets and then create systems to monitor, measure and control the execution of these targets. These systems include budgets, performance management, incentives and appraisals which are used to exercise control and ensure that targets are met. Simple, obvious and wrong!
We need a change in management thinking.
The aim of this blog is to therefore challenge the way in which we currently think about management, hopefully slaying some of the myths that surround it.
