For a while, I have been having fun asking people: ‘how many of you have a boss that actually knows what you are doing?’
Obviously that’s not the way to go. In a recent meetup in #AgileCopenhagen the above quote attributed to Peter Drucker was presented. It’s a better angle.
Is your boss able to tell you what to do (in a sensible way)?
If not, that’s an indicator that you are a knowledge worker 🙂
