ABSTRACT

Management team vertigo is an embarrassing discomfort, which often arises if management team swell is treated by rising too quickly to the top of a viewing tower. This syndrome is easy to explain with a down-to-earth metaphor. If a man is used to working on the ground, a rapid transition to the heights will easily cause a feeling of dizziness. He will cling automatically to the nearest support. For a member of management team this means the following: If you are used to working on an operational basis, a rapid transition to strategic level will cause uncertainty, and so, at meetings, you quickly grab onto your own unit's operational issues. However, this emergency relief will only take you from bad to worse, because of operational focus and you will easily end back to the painful management team swelling.
