  4. 4. In recent times, a series of mass protestsare gripping notably UK, Spain, Italy,Greece, Egypt, Israel, India and numerousother countries around the world. My considered opinion is that this is the outcome of accumulated anger stoked up by perennial poverty, deprivation, disparity, exclusion and marginalization in societies. The outburst is overtly directed against the persons in power for their misrule, corruption, nepotism, arrogance and denial to provide for the minimum. The unprecedented riots across England are found to be caused by the "social selfishness" of the "insulated haves... and their regular denigration of the poor."

  5. 5. Changing Management ScenarioCurrent trends include managers that manage the work and notthe people.Work is more predictable than people.Rather than trying to manage people so strictly, managers areliving in the light and kindness with employees as they are realpeople; their own neighbors.

Management includes(specific, measurable, achievable, realistic,and time-based.) methods ofimplementation Sustainable management takes the concepts from sustainability and synthesizes them with the concepts of management. Sustainability has three branches: the environment, the needs of present and future generations, and the economy Emerging Trends in Management - 2012 by Dr.Harry CD 7
  8. 8. The micro-manager keeps you under scrutiny, questioning your moves.S/he gives advice on your work whether or not you think its necessary. Attimes you dont feel trusted. You may appreciate his/her concerns whenneeded, but also think s/he doubts your capabilities when youre doing acapable job.Pro: Theyre there when you dont need themCon: Theyre there when you do need them They engage the lowest frequency emotion, FEAR, in the workplace. Fear ----> frustration - ----> Depression ---->Sabotage ----> Accidents ----->or Lack of Productivity. Too much micromanagement can cost a company its best and brightest. Emerging Trends in Management - 2012 by Dr.Harry CD 8
  9. 9. The macro-manager is the opposite: S/he may be absent often, leavingyou to make all/most of the decisions, s/he isnt abundant with advice, butexpects a certain level of competency, whether or not the few directionsgiven are completely understood.His/her absenteeism be a relief for awhile, but his/her lack of direction cancome across as detached and apathetic, and may be frustrating whenyoure left with even the responsibilities s/he should be making.Pro: They arent there when you dont need themCon: They arent there when you do need them Emerging Trends in Management - 9 2012 by Dr.Harry CD

  14. 14. The 5 Most Prominent Management Trends of the 21st century –Working Knowledge - the Harvard Business School publicationGlobalizationThe melting of barriers among nations and their increasinginterconnectedness, accelerated by technology, has led to a change inthe world order that has had a profound impact on global business. Theemergence of nations such as India and China has replaced the era ofunquestioned dominance of the Western countries or any one particularregion, paving the way for a flattened business arena where developmentsin one part of the other are certain to have a spiraling impact. Perhaps thebest evidence of this is the recent financial crisis.TechnologyIf the current wave of globalization has been the driving force behind themost far-reaching and powerful changes in business, then informationtechnology has indisputably been the facilitator.
