Transcript

  • 1. A
  • 2. 有朋自远方来,不亦乐乎? 欢迎来到STMG 191的课堂!珍惜当下 :-) Carpe Diem / Seize the Day
  • 3. All the worlds a stage, And all the menand women merely players: They havetheir exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.
  • 4. Welcome to your journey into the world of organisations and management  The journey not the arrival matters’  T.S. Eliot. ‘Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand’  (Chinese proverb) How do you learn best?
  • 5. What do you want to get from this paper? A pass? Pass well? Fail? Don’t know? To be challenged intellectually? Personal development? To become independently minded? To learn to think critically? To differentiate myself? Why should I want to do this? To find out what ‘pushes your buttons’, what route you might want to explore in your degree?
  • 6. What do we want? To get you interested in learning about organisations and management To ‘press your buttons’ To challenge you To get you to think critically To help you realise your potential To make it an enjoyable learning experience To encourage you to ‘learn how to learn’
  • 7. You already know a lot about the subject  Think about the organisations you have belonged to or currently belong to  What do they have in common?  How do they differ?
  • 8. What is an organisation? A collection of people working together to achieve a common purpose Where people are able to accomplish more together than they could individually (achieve synergy) Produce goods and/or services that, hopefully satisfy the needs of customers e. g. 191 is our organisation Organisations do not simply exist to employ people! They also come in all shapes and sizes with a variety of purposes - Red Cross, WMS, Hillcrest High, Hillcrest Bakery etc
  • 9. What is management? Is it…. A Science: knowledge through disciplined exploration of that which is not clearly understood Management utilises scientifically acquired knowledge to develop tools e.g. planning techniques An Art: conceptualised a new idea or approach from personal insights Difficult to conceptualize management as an ‘art’ A Profession: Not a profession but some sub-disciplines have a professional basis e.g. accountancy A Craft: Better thought of as a craft to be mastered like pottery?
  • 10. Management is…. “Getting things done through people” ◦ An on-going activity that, ◦ Entails goal attainment, and ◦ Requires knowing how to perform the major management functions e.g. planning ◦ Often fragmented ‘messy’ and carried out under pressure ◦ Transforming resources ◦ Needs ‘leadership’
  • 11. How did management come about? Why is it important? A tale of three revolutions The Agricultural Revolution in 16th century England The Industrial Revolution in 18/19th century England and Europe The Knowledge Revolution in 20th century, western developed nations e.g. USA
  • 12. What kicked off the Management Revolution?: The Industrial Revolution Power – water - then steam power Mechanisation – application of power Factory system – large scale grouping of people Need for owners to put someone in charge – to supervise Beginnings of modern management
  • 13. But what is it that managers actually do? Is managing contextual or is a universal activity i.e. the same in Auckland as Shanghai? Does managerial work differ according to levels? e.g between senior or lower levels? What are the major challenges facing managers in the 21st century?
  • 14. The Management Process PlanningControlling Organising Leading
  • 15. The Traditional View of Managing Planning ◦ Setting goals and deciding on courses of action to take Controlling ◦ Evaluating how well goals are met and taking actions to correct deficiencies Organising ◦ Establishing a structure of working relationships that coordinates individuals and groups in an effort to achieve goals Leading ◦ Envisioning, energizing, and enabling people to work together to achieve goals
  • 16. Raises more questions than answers…. What do these labels mean e.g. planning? Do all managers engage in all of these activities or only some of them? Do managers at different levels engage in more or less of these activities? Can the messy world of managing be neatly compartmentalised under these headings?
  • 17. Managing is ‘results-orientated’ Managers are concerned about: Effectiveness (goal attainment) ◦ measure of task output or goal accomplishment ◦ direct line to ultimate customer service and satisfaction Efficiency (input/output ratio) ◦ measure of the resource cost associated with goal accomplishment ◦ measure of outputs realised compared to inputs consumed

  • 29. Theory X Managements responsibility is to improve the companys "bottom line." Employees are a resource to be used to meet this goal. People are basically unwilling to work in the best interests of the company, cannot handle responsibility, and must be tightly controlled, prodded, and pressured to get their work done.
