4 years on from the Chartered Management Institute’s 2017 Management Manifesto highlighting that there were over 2.4 million accidental managers in the UK, costing the economy an estimated £84bn a year, where are we now?
Well the answer is, not where we should be. And that’s because not much has changed. Have we really sat back and allowed that 2.4 million number to grow? Have we really taken over a quarter of a trillion pounds hit to our economy because we’ve just not tackled the problem?
According to more recent research by our friends at Lumien, the impact of an Accidental Manager is still rife today, causing up to a 4.5% reduction in productivity per person. So why have we not solved the problem, and moreover, what more can we be doing?
