    • 22. Five Elements of Management -- Managerial Objectives
    • 23. Fourteen Principles of Management (Tools for Accomplishing Objectives)
      Division of work - limited set of tasks
      Authority and Responsibility - right to give orders
      Discipline - agreements and sanctions
      Unity of Command - only one supervisor
      Unity of Direction - one manager per set of activities
      Subordination of Individual Interest to General Interest
      Remuneration of Personnel - fair price for services
      Centralization - reduce importance of subordinate’s role
      Scalar Chain - Fayol’sbridge
      Order - effective and efficient operations
      Equity - kindliness and justice
      Stability of Tenure of Personnel - sufficient time for familiarity
      Initiative - managers should rely on workers’ initiative
      Esprit de corps - “union is strength” “loyal members”
    • 24. Fourteen Principles of Management (Tools for Accomplishing Objectives)
    • 25. Fourteen Principles of Management (Tools for Accomplishing Objectives)
    • 26. Fayol’s Administrative Theory
    • 27.
    • 28. Weber’s Theory of Bureaucracy
      Max Weber (1864-1920)
      German Sociologist
      Theory of Social and Economic Organization (1947)
      Principles and Elements of Management - describe an ideal or pure form of organizational structure (general policy and specific commands
      PRIMARY FOCUS: Organizational Structure
      Worker should respect the “right” of managers to direct activities dictated by organizational rules and procedures
    • 29. Weber’s Ideal Bureaucracy
      Exhibit 2.4
      Q: Are bureaucracies alive today?
    • 30. Weber’s Theory of Bureaucracy
      Bureaucracy allows for the optimal form of authority - “rational authority”
      Three types of Legitimate Authority
      Traditional Authority - past customs; personal loyalty
      Charismatic Authority - personal trust in character and skills
      Rational Authority - rational application of rules or laws
    • 31. Tenets of Bureaucracy
    • 32. Weber’s Theory of Bureaucracy
      Concerned with describing the ideal structure of an organization
      Cornerstone: existence of written rules
    • 33. Weber’s Theory of Bureaucracy
      The rational application of written rules ensures the promotion of legitimate authority and the effective and efficient functioning of the organization.
    • 34. Application in the Modern Workplace
    • 35. “Modern Times”Discussion Questions
      What evidence did you see of Scientific Management (SM)?
      What is the intention of the movie?
      What evidence did you see of a bureaucracy?
      What are the benefits of SM/bureaucracy?
      What are the drawbacks of SM/bureaucracy?

      Dr. Elton Mayo
    • 37. Hawthorne Studies
      • Conducted in late 1920’s
      • 38. Western Electric Hawthorne plant
      • 39. Showed importance of the individual in the workplace
      • 40. Showed the presence of a social system in the workplace
    • Hawthorne studies defined
      A series of experiments in which the output of the workers was observed to increase as a result of improved treatment by their managers.
      Named for their site, at the Western Electric Company plant in Hawthorne, Illinois.
    • 41. Originally intended to examine effects of lighting on productivity
      Scientific management proposed that physical conditions affect productivity
      Result: Productivity increased regardless of lighting level
      Conclusion: Increased productivity was due to workers’ receiving attention
      Hawthorne Studies: Workplace Lighting
    • 42. Illumination Studies
      The first illumination study was made in three departments
      The illumination level in each department was increased at stated intervals
      Puzzling results
      Increased production did not correspond with increased lighting
      Reduced production did not correspond with reduced lighting
    • 43. Illumination Studies
      The second illumination study utilized a test group and a control group.
      Illumination intensities were varied in the test group and compared to the control group.
      Both groups showed increases in production rates that were not only substantial but also nearly identical.
    • 44. Illumination Studies
      The third illumination study reduced the lighting for the test group and held the control group constant.
      Efficiency of both groups increased.
      Production rates increased in the test group until the light became so poor that the workers complained.
    • 45. Illumination Studies
      Employee output was not necessarily related to lighting conditions, and
      Too many variables had not been controlled in the experiments.
    • 46.
      • Examined effects of group piecework pay system on productivity
      • 47. Workers under piecework system should produce as much as possible
      • 48. Scientific management assumes that people are motivated only by money
      • 49. Result: Production less than maximum
      • 50. Conclusion: Social pressure caused workers to produce at group-norm level
      Hawthorne Studies: Piecework Pay
    • 51. Elton Mayo &
      Fritz Roethlisberger
    • 52. Study Background
      Hawthorne studies were conducted from 1927 to 1932 by HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL PROFESSOR ELTON MAYO.
      Purpose of study was to EXAMINE WHAT EFFECT MONOTONY AND FATIGUE had on productivity and how to control them with variables such as rest breaks, work hours, temperature, and humidity.
    • 53. Normal conditions
      Under normal conditions, the work week was 48 hours, including Saturdays. There were no rest pauses.
    • 54. Experiment One
      The workers were put on piece-work for eight weeks.
      Output went up.
    • 55. Experiment Two
      The workers were given two rest pauses, five minutes each, in the morning and afternoon for a period of five weeks.
      Output went up again.
    • 56. Experiment Three
      The rest pauses were increased to ten minutes each.
      Output went up sharply.
    • 57. Experiment Four
      The workers were given six five minute breaks.
      Output fell slightly.
      The workers complained that the work rhythm was broken by frequent pauses.
    • 58. Experiment Five
      The two original rest pauses were put back in place, and the workers were given a free hot meal by the company.
      Output went up.
    • 59. Experiment Six
      The workers were dismissed at 4:30 p.m. instead of 5:00 p.m.
      Output went up.
    • 60. Experiment Seven
      The workers were dismissed at 4:00 p.m.
      Output remained the same.
    • 61. Experiment Eight
      All improvements were taken away and the workers returned to their original working conditions.
      Output was the highest ever recorded!
    • 62. CONCLUSION
      • Level of production is set by social norms, not by physical capacities
      • 63. Non-economic rewards and sanctions affect the behavior of workers
      • 64. Often workers react as members of a group, not as individuals
      • 65. Management should recognize group behavior and act accordingly
    • Hawthorne Studies
      Hawthorne Effect:
      The phenomenon that employees perform better when they feel singled out for attention or feel that management is concerned about their welfare
    • 66. A Very Brief History of Organizational Behaviour
      Scientific Management
      F.W. Taylor – 1890’s.
      “One Best Way” to perform a task.
      Management is responsible for removing obstacles that prevent “first-class” work.
      Labour is responsible for becoming “first-class men”.
      Systematic evaluation of work.
      Labour productivity standards (piece work).
      Expanded on by Gilbreth.
      Human Relations Movement
      Elton Mayo – 1920’s.
      Western Electric (GE) Hawthorne, IL plant.
      Varied illumination levels and measured output.
      Varied placement and duration of breaks.
      Interviewed workers about work practices.
      Rather unexpected results…
    • 67. In general, productivity
      increased with each change
      in work conditions
      Percentage of Standard Output
      Standard work
      Six 5-min. rests
      Two 5-min. rests
      Two 10-min. rests
      Same + 4 p.m. stop
      15-min. rests + lunch
      15-min. rests + lunch
      15-min. rests + lunch
      Same + Sat. a.m. off
      Same + 4:30 p.m. stop
    • 68. Hawthorne Study Results
      Test Room/Control Room
      Changes to work conditions do not produce linear responses to productivity.
      Workers appear to respond to management’s attempts to improve work place.
      Bank Wiring Room
      Workers will scale back productivity to suit group norm.
      Organizations are social systems in which human interactions play a critical role.
    • 69. Explanation of Findings
      The experimental group had considerable freedom of movement compared to other workers in the plant.
      The group developed an increased sense of responsibility and discipline no longer needed to come from a higher authority, it came from within the group.
    • 70. Real World Example
      Workers improve their productivity when they believe management is concerned with their welfare and pay particular attention to them.
      Productivity can also be explained by paying attention to the workers’ social environment and informal groupings.
    • 71. An Exercise
      What kinds of issues affect your productivity?
      What can a principal/superintendent do to increase or decrease your productivity?

    • 76. What Will Be Covered Cont.
      Nuts and Bolts: Explanation of topic
      How it works in the field
      Real World Example
    • 77. Definition of Hawthorne Studies
      “The Hawthorne Studies were conducted from 1927-1932 at the Western Electric Hawthorne Works in Chicago, where Harvard Business School Professor Elton Mayo examined productivity and work conditions.”
    • 78. Definition of Hawthorne Studies Cont.
      “Mayo wanted to find out what effect fatigue and monotony had on job productivity and how to control them through such variables as rest breaks, work hours, temperatures and humidity.”
    • 79. Mayo’s Experiment
      Five women assembled telephone relays, one supplied the parts.
      Made frequent changes in working conditions with their consent.
      Records were kept of relays made, temperature and humidity of rooms, medical and personal histories, eating and sleeping habits, and bits of conversation on the job.
      No one supervised the girls.
      They were told to work as they felt and at a comfortable pace.
    • 80. Mayo’s Experiment Cont.
      Productive capacity was measured by recording the girls’ output for two weeks before the study began.
      First five weeks, no changes were made.
      Third stage, a pay system was ensured allowing the girls’ to earn in proportion to their efforts.
      Eight weeks later, two five-minute rest pauses were added.
    • 81. Mayo’s Experiment Cont.
      Eighth phase, workday ended a half-day early.
      Ninth phase, the girls finished an hour earlier than usual.
      Five-day week introduced.
      Girls went back to no breaks, lunches and a full work week, output declined for those twelve weeks.
    • 82. Results
      Researchers found that output rates weren’t directly related to the physical conditions of the work.
      Output went up when:
      They were put on piece-work for eight weeks.
      Two five minute rest pauses were introduced for five weeks.
      Rest pauses were lengthened to ten minutes.
      A hot meal was supplied during first pause.
      They were dismissed at 4:30 p.m. instead of 5:00 p.m.
    • 83. Results Cont.
      Output slightly fell when six five minute pauses were added.
      It remained the same when they were dismissed at 4:00 p.m. instead of 4:30 p.m.
      Mayo believes “what actually happened was that six individuals became a team and the team gave itself wholeheartedly and spontaneously to cooperation in the experiment. The consequence was that they felt themselves to be participating freely and without afterthought, and were happy in the knowledge that they were working without coercion from above or limitations from below.”
    • 84. Conclusions
      Work is a group activity.
      Social world for an adult is primarily patterned about work.
      Need for recognition, security and sense of belonging.
      Complaints, commonly a symptom manifesting disturbance of an individual’s status position.
    • 85. Conclusions Cont.
      Attitudes and effectiveness are conditioned by social demands.
      Informal groups at work are strong social controls over the work habits and attitudes of a worker.
      Change from established society to adaptive society.
      Group collaboration.
    • 86. Brainstorming: How this can be used in organizations
      Cooperation and communication with coworkers.
      Rearrange/reorganize job functions.
      Create an atmosphere of working as a team.
    • 87. Nuts and Bolts: Explanation of Topic
      Provide insight to workers moral, their likes and dislikes and how they felt about their bosses.
    • 88. Nuts and Bolts: Explanation of Topic Cont.
      Role of Supervisor
      Retained the responsibility of making sure that their workers reached production levels, should lead their workers.
    • 89. Nuts and Bolts: Explanation of Topic Cont.
      Need to gain active support and participation from workers, while maintaining managerial control.
      Be patient with workers, listen to them, and avoid creating emotional upsets.
    • 90. Nuts and Bolts: Explanation of Topic Cont.
      Cooperation, communication, sense of belonging.
      “Man’s desire to be continuously associated in work with his fellows is a strong, if not the strongest, human characteristic. Any disregard of it by management or any ill-advised attempt to defeat this human impulse leads instantly to some form of defeat for management itself.”
    • 91. How it Works in the Field
      Aspects of Hawthorne Studies
    • 92. How it Works in the Field Cont.
      Insights, suggestions, likes and dislikes, moral, training.
      Transfer of power to workers, knowing their workers.
    • 93. How it Works in the Field Cont.
      Incentives to increase productivity and quality.
      By increasing the output rate and keeping costs down, the company will be able to increase profits.
    • 94. Real World Example
      Swedish Case
      Pay system didn’t fit the structure of jobs and organization.
      Two years later an incentive system was added, productivity went up 45%.
    • 95. Real World Example Cont.
      Swedish Case
      New incentive system provided motivation through tying cooperation and teamwork.
    • 96. Exercise
      Brainstorm ideas that can motivate employees to increase productivity and find ways to implement them.
      Think of more efficient ways in which a process can be completed and who you might go to in order to find this out.
    • 97. Summary
      Hawthorne Studies dealing with worker motivation and work productivity.
      Increase communication and cooperation among coworkers.
    • 98. Summary Cont.
      Motivation can cause an increase in productivity
      Involve employees in decision making.
      Create a sense of belonging by creating teams.
    • 99. Brainstorming Exercise
      What can a manager do to improve productivity?
