Elliot Jacques

Psychoanalyst, management expert, social scientist. Jacques' theories of management, including his "Stratified Systems Theory" and other theories of what he calls "requisite organization", are routinely dismissed by egalitarians and advocates of soft, group-centred theories of organization and management. That contempt alone suggests their potential for interest to conservatives and truth-seekers in government and elsewhere. Author of Requisite Organization and others.

Everything is teams, teams, teams ... but we've brought in the teams in ways that have totally undermined the importance of effective managerial leadership.

May 1992 - quoted in "The Long View of Leadership" by Alexander Ross, published in Canadian Business Magazine
