Last July publish in this Blog a case of successful management like Apple. In August I bring a business case with less success: Uber. The technological giants carry out negotiations that appear in all business schools. Some are examples of management to study and draw positive conclusions when managing multinationals. However, business failures sometimes also serve to draw conclusions from what should not be done. Uber has a dubious reputation in many countries because he enters as “an elephant in a hardware store”. I say this with all due respect, of course. I read this information from the New York Times that seems to me the most fair to Uber’s business reality
They grow up learning a few things about how to approach
problems. The piece that they possibly miss is that, once you’re in
the real world, it’s all about other people. Giving is more important
than your point of view.

the difference between frontline managers and leaders. Leaders find
a way to work together. They find a solution. There’s always a way,
and you’ve got to find what that way is.
