To me the part that seperates good GM's from great GM's is the ability to institute the kind of culture you want through your organization and having the vision to foresee where the game is headed and be infront of the curve as opposed to behind it, chasing it. These are things that are more of the wait and see category and will play some role in MacT success or lack thereof in his new role.

Forecasting. Good managers are constantly working towards an end product with every transaction. It's impossible to build for three years in the future without an identity in mind. It's entirely what we have lacked in the Lowe era and is mirrored throughout failures in all sports.

Unfortunately, experience is really the only way of vetting such a culture. Howson just experienced it, so hopefully we can impart some of this on MacT quickly.
