Employees who complete tasks on time, with good quality, when they only manage themselves have a fairly high probability of being able to achieve organizational goals on time and within budget.

Employees who are conversent on all the latest happy talk managment fads from the most current guru, are much more likely to build self satisfied teams who can positively affirm the managers personnel development skills while he or she explains to senior executives that repeatedly failing to produce anything of value on time or within budget is actually a good thing. The senior executives can then congratulate themselves on selecting such an enlightened manager as they fail to win reelection.
