Does he come with a goatee or will that grow on him with time?

LinkedIn may be showing him in that role still as he still has a week or two to go I believe. But he has resigned.

The gent you are referring to looks like an idiot with that facial coverage. He had tickets on himself to become the next CEO. Fool. It was never going to happen.

Ms Sue McCarrey, CEO of ONRSR, also had an interview for the coveted DAS CEO position.

If your information is correct, and I believe it is, my money is on Sue being appointed. Government is obsessed with the female movement, rainbow movement and mentally retarded movement. The Scotsman only meets two of those criteria - mentally retarded and female.

No. Just stating a well known fact. I have no issue with any of these diversity groups whatsoever, Iím simply stating what most people know these days and that is if you are one of these three groups then the world is your oyster. If you are a heterosexual white male these days you will need all the luck in the world to snag a job ahead of the other 3 groups mentioned.

I tend to see this post after every non White non Heterosexual non male person is selected for a role.

Funny how when a white heterosexual male gets a job due to nepotism or the old boys club the ďbest person for the jobĒ argument is never trotted out.

As far as Ms McCarrey goes whilst not backgrounded in Aviation she has a pretty distinguished career as a transport safety regulator, so her getting the job is hardly a result of meeting gender quotas. In fact sheís more experienced in civil transport regulation than the two previous long term CASA DASís, SC and MS.

Was their lack of recent civil transport regulation experience brought up as a negative and an example of nepotism in getting a role?

You used gender as a pejorative in describing Crawford. Iím with Dre.

Dre and Galah. Actually its the other way around. There is a very active and visible "Old Girls Club" that constantly lobbies on behalf of women in management and politics. You read their whines all the time in the press. There are also mentoring programs and a lot of personal lobbying. This is regarded as virtuous - aimed at breaking the "glass ceiling".

There is no equivalent in the world of men. Clubs don't do it and haven't for at least 40 years by my experience. The only male mentoring I've seen is associated with the Rhodes scholarship program.

I've tried mentoring a brilliant female once. She didn't work for my part of the business but she had obvious talent. I tried promoting her achievements and to make a career step for her. One of my female Directors took a personal dislike to the girl and shut me down. Today I wouldn't even dare try - too much chance of getting accused of workplace sexual harassment.

As for choosing leaders, I am now of the belief that the MBA "Scientific management" school of thought is a waste of time. Experience has taught me that you CANNOT successfully manage something you have no experience of, no matter how slavishly you follow procedures and policies and all the other theories in vogue that day. You need actual hands on experience. Not necessarily very much but exposure to the way the business works.

I would hope the lady in question has enough experience to do the job. It sounds to me that she should.

Oh my goodness, the MBA sausage factories wouldn’t be happy to hear this, they’ve staked their last 30 years of existence on this flawed concept.

The latest from MBA factories is "building value" for stakeholders. Before that it was "sustainable" business practices.

They all sound great in the classroom but are a little harder to do in the real world.

Sunny,
How true, but many in our industry ignore the absolute need for practical experience in managing safety regulation. That is not to say the DAS needs to be experienced in aviation, per se - experience in transport safety regulation will be fine, as long as the domain specialists have relevant experience.

At least one of the aviation safety regulatory agencies in the Pacific is operating with a leader with no regulatory experience except for the past four years in their current appointment. The organization operates without an FOI and with the majority of staff having no domain experience in the areas over which they exercise surveillance; AN, AIS, AGA, DG, FA inspectors all have two degrees but none of them relevant to their "day jobs". To argue with them on the basis of "experience" or examples from other States is to risk censure and adverse findings.

And a classic from the head of the organization who delights in threatening punitive action; "It is not the role of the regulator to promote "just culture"..

A pathetically weak DPM demonstrates his pathetic weakness once again. Just toss a coin and call it Mick, if it's too hard on the merits.

Just make a decision.

It won't make any difference in the real world (except for the credulous fools who haven't paid much attention to or have forgotten what's happened in the last 20 years or so).
