Today's job-hopping executive values motion not because it leads to change but because it is change. More and more, however, he is the one who reaches the top rather than the plodding insider. This article is about the mobicentric man who is replacing the insider and the organization man. The learning curve for management skills is such that 80 percent of virtually any job can be learned in 20 percent of the time it would take to learn the job perfectly. What most corporations want in a future executive these days is a bachelor's in science or engineering and a master's in business administration. More and more men who become presidents do so after joining the corporation at a high level rather than working their way up through the ranks at one company. Upon arrival, a mobile manager assesses the demands of his new position and aims to do the most important part of the job. Many managers know that the best way to get a promotion is to train a good replacement.
