経営学はとっつきにくい」と思っている方がいるかもしれませんが、自転車置き場の話がビジネススクールで紹介されているなど、とっても面白い学問領域であると私は感じています :-)。

 < Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「些細な」=「trivial」>






「パーキンソンの凡俗法則」を英語にする場合、「Parkinson's Law of Triviality」とすれば良いですね :-)。


PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 117 "We can only see trivial things?"】


When I was a business school student, I learned “Parkinson's Law of Triviality” in a business strategy class.


“Parkinson's Law of Triviality” insists that “The organization places more emphasis on trivial matters than necessary” and “discussion of bicycle storage” is given as an example.


When a company discussed about "entry into the nuclear power generation business" and "installation of bicycle bays", the nuclear power generation business is a story of billions of dollars, but expertise such as nuclear reactors is challenging for many staff to keep up with the story.


On the other hand, most employees can enter into the discussion about whether or not to set up bicycle bays in the workplace, and much time will be spent.


The cost of installing a bicycle parking area must be very cheap compared to the nuclear power generation business, but the company has devoted a lot of effort to “trivial things (bicycle bays)” and which is claimed by Parkinson’s Law of Triviality.


The material to be introduced today “MBA Keywords 50 (Japanese)” explains 50 business theories which can be a weapon and this book should be read by all business persons, I supposed.


You may think that “Business strategy is difficult to catch up”, but I feel that it is a very interesting academic field :-).
