Krishna - Management 60 Principles
  61. 61. ORGANIZING• Means : “to organize a business is to provide it with everything useful to its functioning, raw materials, tools, capital, personnel.”• Fayol concerned himself both with structure and process, listing 16 managerial duties and emphasizing the necessity for clear objectives, authority, decisions and task Dr.R.

  68. 68. TRADITIONAL AUTHORITY• In this type of authority system – the leader has authority by virtue of his status that he has inherited• The extent of his authority is fixed by custom• The officials who carry out the orders are like ‘household staff’ of the master Dr.R. Krishna - Management 68 Principles
  69. 69. Rational-Legal authority = bureaucracy• This authority system dominates, and it is most efficient one• This system is characterized by rationality and legality• The system is rational because the means are expressly designed to achieve certain specific goals• The org is like a well designed machine with a certain function to perform, and every part of the machine contributes to the attainment of maximum performance of that function.• It is legal, because authority is exercised by means of a system of rules and procedures through the office which the individual occupies at a particular time Dr.R.

  73. 73. • Principle of Objective (purpose/mission/objectives and vision)• Principle of Specialization : the activities of every member of any organized group should be confined, as far as possible, to the performance of a single function• Principle of coordination: The purpose of organizing per se, as distinguished from the purpose of the undertaking, is to facilitate coordination and unity of effort. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 73 Principles
  74. 74. • Principle of Authority: In every organization group, the supreme authority must rest somewhere. There should be a clear line of authority from the supreme authority to every individual in the group• Principle of Responsibility : The responsibility of the superior for the acts of his subordinate is absolute• Principle of Definition: The content of each position, the duties involved, the authority and responsibility contemplated and the relationships with other positions, should be clearly defined in writing, and published to all concerned Dr.R. Krishna - Management 74 Principles

  76. 76. George Elton Mayo (1880-1949)• He has been called the founder of the “human relations school.”• He became famous on account of the Hawthorne experiments• These experiments had a significant impact on management thought, and considerably influenced the “human relations movement.”• Experiments conducted in the Hawthorne Plant of the Western Electric Company in Chicago – from 1927 to 1932. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 76 Principles
  77. 77. Hawthorne studies – three general phases• Test Room Studies : the object being to assess the effect of single variables upon employee performance. They were experimental in nature• Interviewing Studies: these were largely concerned with improving employee attitudes and were psychological in nature• Observations Studies: these were undertaken to understand and describe the factors influencing the informal organization of work groups and were sociological in nature Dr.R. Krishna - Management 77 Principles
  78. 78. TEST ROOM STUDIES• Illumination Experiments: Two test groups – varied effects of lighting on output vs. no change situation; the results were that in both the groups the output increased. Conclusion that environmental factors like lighting may not be the only factor, there could be other variables• Relay Assembly Test Room Experiments: This study was made to discover the anomalies of the previous experiments. Numerous variables were put into action – room conditions, pauses during work, piece-work, work without pauses and shorter working hours. After 12 week study, the output went up to a record level Dr.R. Krishna - Management 78 Principles
  79. 79. • Interviewing studies: An interview program of thousands of workers was conducted with the object of finding out the attitude of the employees towards their job, working conditions and supervisionThe interviewing program revealed the following points:a. Merely giving a person an opportunity to talk and air his grievance has a beneficial effect on his moraleb. Complaints are not necessarily objective statements of facts. They are often symptoms of more deep-seated disturbancesc. Workers are influenced in their demands by experience both inside and outside the factoryd. Worker is satisfied or dissatisfied not in terms of any objective frame of reference but rather in terms of how he regards his social status in the firm and what he feels he is entitled to in the way of rewards Dr.R. Krishna - Management 79 Principles
  80. 80. Observational studies• The Bank Wiring Observation Group Study constituted the last phase of Hawthorne studies• It was conducted to investigate the social pattern of a group of fourteen workers and their associated supervisors• The main point of difference between this study and the earlier test room studies was that no experimental changes were planned but efforts were directed to study the group in its customary functioning• This study revealed that there existed a GROUP NORM in terms of which the behavior of different individuals was in some sense being regulated Dr.R. Krishna - Management 80 Principles
  81. 81. • This group was restricting the output on account of various forms of social pressures• The group had for itself a standard of a day’s work which was not imposed upon them, but had apparently been evolved by workmen themselves• The group had various social pressures to see that the workers did not exceed the group output norm, and nobody attempted to attain official production targets• Those who attempted to exceed became targets of social disapproval, verbally or physically• This study showed the importance of informal, social group in business organization• A member of such a group cared more for the opinion of the group rather than for financial incentives of the management• IT WAS THE GROUP THAT DECIDED HIS ATTITUDE TO WORK, MANAGEMENT AND LEVEL OF PRODUCTION• THESE STUDIES FURTHER REAFFIRMED THE IMPORTANCE OF INFORMAL GROUP IN THE MOTIVATION OF WORKERS. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 81 Principles
  82. 82. CONCLUSIONS OF HAWTHORNE STUDIES1. Environmental factors not the sole factors affecting productivity2. Worker is not an economic man (not purely motivated by money alone)3. Importance of recognition, Security and Morale4. Importance of Informal group5. Importance of total work situation6. Complaints as symptoms Dr.R. Krishna - Management 82 Principles
  83. 83. Mary Parker Follett-famed political and social philosopher• Her main contributions:Was formulation of principles of human association and organization, especially in terms of industryThe basis of her philosophy was that one cannot separate work from human beingsBusiness is a series of interrelationships between peopleFollett pleaded that there is a great need to recognize the motivating desires of the individual and the groupShe said that the basic problem of any organization was that of harmonizing and coordinating the group efforts to achieve the most efficient effort towards completing a taskShe talked about power, leadership and authority.Her ideas are as under: Dr.R. Krishna - Management 83 Principles
  84. 84. Conflicts• Follett said that conflicts have a constructive role to play in an organization.• Conflicts are not “warfares” but the “appearance of difference, difference of opinion, of interests.”• Conflicts are neither good or bad; if used constructively their results are god and if used destructively their results are bad• She suggested that conflicts can be harnessed to the service of the group much as an engineer uses friction Dr.R. Krishna - Management 84 Principles
  85. 85. Three ways to resolve conflicts• Domination (victory of one side over the other. Follett did not advance this method, because of use of force beyond a certain point lessens energies and self-respect)• Compromise (This is better than Domination; both sides surrender some part of what they are demanding, i.e., for a compromise there must be a mid-point between the needs and desires of both parties on which they agree, willingly or unwillingly. This method is still commonly unsatisfactory)• Integration (best way to resolve conflicts; it means combination of what is best in all view points, i.e, bringing about unity of conflict in which both sides se a way out which will satisfy their real needs. It resolves conflicts for good• FOR DETAILS ATTEND A CONFLICT MANAGEMENT CLASS Dr.R. Krishna - Management 85 Principles
  86. 86. Follett’s views on Leadership• It is the role of the leader to educate and train• The leader is responsible for integrative unity• The great leader is one who is able to integrate the experience of all and use it for a common purpose• Leadership is not the product of position but of knowledge Dr.R. Krishna - Management 86 Principles
  87. 87. Follett’s views on Authority and Responsibility• Authority belongs to the job and stays with the job• An executive decision is an movement in a process• Authority and responsibility go with function Dr.R. Krishna - Management 87 Principles
  88. 88. Follett’s views on Co-ordination• CONTROL , Follett, meant fact control rather than human control, and central control meant synthesis rather than domination from the center• The four principles of organization at which she finally arrived at provided for the need of four kinds of coordination as the basis of good management: Dr.R. Krishna - Management 88 Principles
  89. 89. 4 principles of coordination• Coordination by direct contact of the responsible people concerned. Ideas, ideals, goals and purposes can be easily stated and understood through direct personal contact and communication• Coordination should be achieved in early stages of planning and policy-making. It would be easier to secure the willing enthusiastic adherence of all concerned to any new principles and policy if they have participated from the beginning. For this principle – Follett had suggested cross relations between heads of departments instead of up and down the line through the chief executive Dr.R. Krishna - Management 89 Principles
  90. 90. • In coordination all factors in a situation are reciprocally related• Coordination is a continuous process. It means that coordination should be left to chance and it is the duty of the coordinator to strive for it constantly so that the efforts of the group are directed towards achieving the common goals Dr.R. Krishna - Management 90 Principles
  91. 91. Follett on PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT• Management can develop as a profession on two bases:a. Its recognition as a function of or service to the communityb. Application of an accepted and proven body of knowledge and principlesManagers can become professional by working for long hours and thus getting satisfaction from work.According to her, a professional manager has three main jobs:1. S/he must be loyal to company2. S/he must inform the public what are good practices and standards (today it is called Corporate Governance) and3. S/he must try to extend the boundaries of knowledge in his/her profession and then pass on his/her extra knowledge for the benefit of all. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 91 Principles
  92. 92. CHESTER I. BARNARD (1886- 1961)• While Fayol developed the principles of management, Barnard proved that such principles could be applied in practice• He defined organization as : “ a system of consciously coordinated activities or forces of two or more persons.”• He believed people in organization contributed services and not themselves• Barnard tried to analyze how organization functions as a ‘living body.’• For him, to understand the small organization was to understand the large organization because all organizations possess certain common characteristics Dr.R. Krishna - Management 92 Principles
  93. 93. Elements of Organization• Willingness to cooperate• Common purpose and• CommunicationAre the elements of an organization Dr.R. Krishna - Management 93 Principles
  94. 94. Equilibrium internal and external• Barnard firmly believe that an organization is separate from the environment in which it operates• The person who contribute services to the orgs has two distinct roles – the personal role and the an organizational role• He suggested that orgs must maintain internal and external equilibrium• Internal equilibrium he meant: reward and satisfaction for the participation; thus the balance between what employees get out of work (money, status, reward, etc) and what they contribute (time, worry, discomfort, etc) must be maintained• The relationship of the org to the environment is not static but functional Dr.R. Krishna - Management 94 Principles
  95. 95. Acceptance theory of authority• Barnard disagreed with the classical view that authority transcends from top to bottom• He said that authority transcends from bottom to top i.e. it is delegated upwards• Authority does not depend on commands, but on a reciprocal relationship; a communication becomes authoritative by virtue of its acceptance by a contributor.• Thus AUTHORITY DEPENDS ON COMMUNICATION Dr.R. Krishna - Management 95 Principles
  96. 96. • A PERSON CAN AND WILL ACCEPT A COMMUNICATION AS AUTHORITATIVE ONNLY WHEN FOUR CONDITIONS ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY FULFILLED:1. S/HE can and does understand communication2. At the time of his/her decision, he believes that it is not inconsistent with the purpose of the organization3. At the time of his/her decision, s/he believes it to be compatible with his / her personal interest as a whole , and4. s/he is able, mentally and physically, to comply with it. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 96 Principles
  97. 97. Zone of Indifference• Barnard developed the concept of ‘zone of indifference.’• He believed that the form and nature of the acceptance of the communication differ and it depends upon the zone of indifference• Certain orders are acceptable, certain barely acceptable, and certain orders are unquestionable• Those orders which are unquestionably acceptable lie within the zone of indifference, ie. They lie within the range that in a general way was anticipated at the time of undertaking the connection with their organization Dr.R. Krishna - Management 97 Principles
  98. 98. Barnard’s views on Incentives• Incentives are prerequisites of cooperation in any organization. Barnard was of the view that people in the org do not work for money alone. Some of the incentive types are:a. Material or financial inducementsb. Personal opportunities, such as status, power, etc. Good physical conditionsd. Attractiveness of social conditionse. General conditions adapted or suitable to the individual’s ideas and attitudesf. Opportunities for participationg. Good communication andh. Opportunities for satisfying perosnal motivation such as pride in work, sense of adequacy, etc. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 98 Principles
  99. 99. Executive decisions and functions• The executive who occupies a crucial position in the organization has three basic functions. They are:a. Maintaining org communication.

Obtaining essential services from individuals: It includes correct selection of individuals, and provision of the necessary inducements, maintaining morale (subjective feeling toward work), providing incentives and sanctions, supervision and trainingc. Formulating purposes and objectives at all levels Dr.R. Krishna - Management 99 Principles
  100. 100. Barnard on Communication• Principles of Communication:1. Channels of communication must be definitely known by all2. These channels must be formally laid down3. Each channel should be as short as possible4. Generally communication should go through all stages in the channel5. People acting as communication centers (managers) should be adequate to their tasks6. Channels of communications should not be interrupted while the organization is functioning7. Communications (orders) must come from points where the necessary authority is known to exist Dr.R. Krishna - Management 100 Principles
  101. 101. Barnard on Leadership• The real test of the executive or manager is leadership• Leaders should recognize that low morality will not sustain leadership long Dr.R. Krishna - Management 101 Principles
  102. 102. Alfred P. Sloan (1875-1966)• Greatly responsible for the success of General Motors• Sloan regarded two factors as important for the success of a business:a. Motivation – through incentive compensationb. Opportunity – through decentralizationHe said that good management rests on a reconciliation of centralization and decentralization or “decentralization with coordination control”Decentralization results in initiative, responsibility, development of personnel, decisions close to facts, and flexibility.Coordination results in efficiencies and economiesAuthority and responsibility must be congruent and commensurate to each other Dr.R. Krishna - Management 102 Principles
  103. 103. Sloan’s real partnership process… with his executives was done bya. Utilizing their abilities to the fullb. A fair policy of promotionc. Offering real incentivesd. By using persuasion rather than command Dr.R. Krishna - Management 103 Principles
  104. 104. GM PLAN: IN 1920, INDICATES HIS SEVERAL THOUGHTS• This plan was based on two principles:a. Decentralization of operation andb. Centralized staff services to advise the line on specialized phases of the work, and central measurement of results to check the exercise of delegated authority(staff function = support function; line function = responsible for the “earnings” for the corporation. Thus only line function is SALES AND ALL OTHER FUNCTIONS INCLUDING MARKETING ARE STAFF FUNCTIONS. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 104 Principles
  105. 105. Points emphasized in the PLAN:a. Relationship of various divisions of a corporation with one another as well as with the central organizationb. Status of central organizationc. Coordination of operations of the central organization with the corporation as a wholed. Centralization of control of all the executive functions in the CEOe.

Establishment, by the Board of Directors and its committees, of uniform policies and procedures to govern the overall operations of all divisions in any area in which such consistency is judged to be necessary for the best interests of the corporation as a whole2. Delegation of full authority, within this framework of uniform policy and procedures, with corresponding responsibility for the use of the authority so delegated3.

Business objectives andentrepreneurial functions…Drucker• There is only one valid definition of business purpose : to create a customer• According to him, “it is the customer who determines what a business is. It is the customer alone whose willingness to pay for a good or for a service converts economic resources into wealth, things into goods.”• CONCEPT OF PROFIT AS THE OBJECT OF BUSINESS• Profit is not the explanation, cause or rationale of business behavior and business decisions but the TETST OF THEIR VALIDITY. Dr.R. Krishna - Management 127 Principles
  128. 128. On Profit….Drucker• The profit motive and profit maximization are, in his opinion, ‘irrelevant’ in managing a business.• However, profits are necessary on account of risk in business• Profit is the test of performance; it is premium for the risk of uncertainty; profit alone can supply capital for tomorrow’s jobs, profit pays for the economic satisfaction and services of a society Dr.R.

MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES AND SELF-CONTROL• The concept is credited to Drucker and George S.Odiorne.• The MBO is the central point of discussion in his book – The practice of Mangement-writes :“Management is not just a creature of the economy; it is a creator as well. And only to the extent to which it masters the economic circumstances, and alters them by conscious, directed action, does it really change. To manage business means, therefore, to mange by objectives.” Dr.R. Krishna - Management 132 Principles
  133. 133. • MBO is a managerial philosophy and technique that attempts to draw on people’s needs for achievement, competence and anatomy by allowing them to set their objectives, goals, and performance criteria• This concept applies to employees at any position Dr.R. Krishna - Management 133 Principles
  134. 134. Why MBO?• The specialized work of the manager• The hierarchy in organizations• The existence of difference in vision in businessesSuch factors cause conflict and breakdown in the organization and MBO overcomes these deficiencies by relating the task for each manager to the overall goals for he company.
