Video: The Manager’s Multiple Points of Accountability, Managment Training in 60 Seconds

April 3, 2008 | By | No Comments


Your Business Blogger(R): and

Your Circle of Friends When Your Business Blogger(R) served a tour of duty in government, I learned the harsh reality of what academics called “Multiple Points of Accountability.”

I thought that my boss was my only constituent.

Nope. I learned that I had better pay attention to the press, to other department silos, to numerous associations (aka lobbyists), other political appointees, elected officials — and finally: The Voters.

There is no difference between management in government and business. The basics are constant.

The first thing every manager learns is that he has multiple points of accountability. Points outside his silo.

The manager must nurture multiple points of accountability to turn these to multiple points of support.

He’s got to turn his silo into a circle — of friends.

Watch the one minute clip and let me know what you think.

To Manage … — Your Circle of Friends.

The first thing every manager learns is that he has multiple points of accountability. Points outside his silo.

The manager must nurture multiple points of accountability to turn these to multiple points of support.

He’s got to make his silo into a circle — of friends.

The circle is the manager’s boss and staff, company peers, outside peers, must be considered like a business development project.

As Biz Dev For Example, you the manager are selling ideas up to your boss,

getting talent from your peer in HR — getting delivery from an outside vendor – all to get resources for your staff.

This is managing business – to nurture relationships – to nurture your circle of friends.

Your mission as a manager is to develop your circle of friends –even if you’re like me and don’t care much for people.
