Individualism Is Good

Alois Hofbauer

Acorporate leader gave a new dimension to “individualism” as opposed to team work at a CIMA conference on Monday (September 24). Nestle Sri Lanka’s Managing Director Alois Hofbauer speaking at this occasion said that Mozart was not created out of teamwork, neither were Leonardo da Vinci nor Einstein.
“We do have to value single, individual performance,” he said. Teamwork doesn’t necessarily allow people to work efficiently over others. Hofbauer further said that the problem in today’s world is that there is too much of information, but too little knowledge. He said that ERPs can never replace management accountants because the human factor is missing in the former.
