Any sport, stripped to its essentials, sounds pretty silly. Hockey involves 12 people chasing a rubber disk around a frozen surface, and golf involves repeatedly hitting a little white ball until it decides to fall into a little cup. A summary of Sayles' (1964) book has much the same quality: management is more a social act than a cognitive one. Beyond this simple statement, however, lies a wealth of insight.
