Hopkins - MBA Trivia: Wine and Sewage Law

管理學中有一個有趣的定律「酒與污水定律」(Wine and Sewage Law),意旨無論將一匙酒倒進一桶污水,還是將一匙污水倒進一桶酒當中,得出的都會是污水。 由此可見,污水和酒的份量並不能決定桶子內液體的性質,真正起決定作用的是污水。

在任何組織裡,都存在不少懶惰的員工,但最為可怕的是一些破壞者。他們似小人一樣到處搬弄是非,傳播流言、破壞企業內部的和諧。 如果不及時處理的話企業便會像加入了污水一樣的酒桶般開始倒退。

因此,當企業的表現開始出現下滑的跡象,管理者應運用「酒與污水定律」,先將企業中的僱員清晰地分為人才(酒)及搗亂者(污水),這便需要管理者對人才篩選的技巧,好好的善用工作效率高的人才,並將「污水」從企業中剔除。

其次,企業管理者在招募人才時同樣亦要做好篩選,並緊記一旦讓搗亂者(污水)進入企業環境(酒桶)當中,再多的人才(酒)亦沒法再令酒桶變回原先只有酒的桶子。

雖然要做到將「污水」排出企業外並不容易,但只要找到合適的最佳途徑,就能順利揚起企業的奮進之帆。
