Hamster Management Secrets
In light of the recent American elections (which resulted in the installation of a Hamster-friendly regime; coincidence? I think not!) I thought I'd speak a bit about staying in power. A number of things keep your successful global despot on top. One is, of course, irresistible cuteness. But you can't just stop at good looks, ya know. It's also important to keep abreast of the latest management techniques. I've long been a fan of the classics "Who Moved My Cheese," which came out of the Business School at M.I.T. (the Mouse Institute of Technology). Solid rodent thinking, that one! I am now reading, through the kind offices of DG, the latest out of Harvard's School of Advanced Penguinity, "Our Iceberg Is Melting." The flightless aquatic avian approach to systems and management is no less thought-provoking. I recommend both to all you aspiring tyrants out there!
