In this sequel to Damnation, our manager has slipped again by failing to manage his time wisely. Now he's back in front of St. Peter (John Cleese) who teaches him that it's important to understand why your doing the job and not just how to do it. More advanced management concepts are covered in this video as well, such as, combining active and reactive tasks to make better use of everyone's time and create better results.
Divine Intervention - 20:00 minutes
In this third, and final, film in The Unorganized Manager series, our manager is on the road to recovery, both physically and in terms of his organizational techniques. St. Peter (John Cleese) gives him the last bit of help that he needs with important insights into his team building habits.
With right-way-wrong-way scenarios, Divine Intervention succeeds in building onto the lessons of the first two films, but may also be used on its own as a comprehensive and entertaining lesson in management technique.
