Tim Prosser (Timothy F. Prosser) lives in Southeastern Michigan, USA, where he thinks a lot about how human organizations work. He has a B.S. in Geography from Eastern Michigan University and an M.B.A. from The University of Michigan. He is a lifetime musician, writer, and amateur radio operator (30 years, callsign KT8K), and has a left-handed genius wife, three grown children, and three grandsons. He spends some of his spare time on an array of blogs including one on the future (link), this one on business management (link), and one blog containing bad management advice in a humorous vein (link), as well as his music projects on youtube (link) and at his music website (link).
Regarding this blog, Tim writes:
I’ve been observing organizational behavior since childhood, though I didn’t recognize it then. My first job in high school began a stream of insights about what differentiates effective from ineffective management, and I’ve written many unpublished articles on the subject over the decades (most lost in the files, tapes, floppy disks, and hard drives of the past). This blog is my attempt to expose my observations and thoughts to public view. By this I hope to accelerate my education in this area and increase awareness of my readers and contributors. I long ago came to believe that work can be good, even fun, for anyone, and that management can be quite effective without forceful and coercive techniques. While I am looking for confirmation of these concepts (a human thing to do) I am also looking for information that would refine or refute my beliefs, and I am unafraid of criticism (as long as it doesn’t hurt me economically).
Please enjoy reading (or listening to) my creations and feel free to contribute your comments. Thanks in advance, and best of luck in your work life (and life in general) – Tim Prosser
