Project management styles.
Blind Bowling and Seagulls.
Blind Bowling: A bowler is standing, toeing the line, and prepares to bowl. The manager comes from behind and ties a blindfold over the eyes of the bowler. “You got two chances, go for it.” The manager says.
The ball rolls down the alley. Pins get hit. The bowler waits to hear how he did. “You missed two, last chance.” The bowler is doomed. The manager is absolved. He told the blind bowler what he needed to do, and the blind man failed.
Seagulls: The Seagulls are gathered in crowded rows, lining the beach. The manager Seagull flies in from above. The manager struts along the beach, back and forth. The manager squawks and flaps his wings.
Occasionally, the manager will turn and squirt Seagull-Poop on a few selected targets. The manager struts and squawks and delivers a few more squirts. The manager squawks, flaps his wings, and flies away. The manager gave warnings and issued punishment, the manager finished his job.
