on management

“a contract, hence an agreement, between superior and subordinate. The subordinate agrees to make his actions serve his supervisor’s intent in terms of what is to be accomplished, while the superior agrees to give his subordinate wide freedom to exercise his imagination and initiative in terms of how intent is to be realized.”

John Boyd, Patterns of Conflict, slide 76.
