The Managerial Myth (The M-Myth)

“Entrepreneurs receive accolades, venture capital, and big paydays. Technicians live in secure jobs by delivering excellent results. Managers are the subject of Dilbert cartoons and films like Office Space. Why? The E-Myth means mistaking Technical competence for Ownership competence. The M-Myth means believing that creating measurable, consistent, profitable results is as simple as having a great idea.

"The leap between idea and an orchestrated execution requires Management - the entrepreneurial spark (or seizure) is only the first of ten thousand steps necessary to operate a great business.”
      — Jed Bickford, Marketing Manager, E-Myth
