  5. 5. Contingency Theory   The manager makes decisions based off what is happening at that moment of time. Contingency theories are a class of behavioral theory that contend that there is no one best way of leading and that a leadership style that is effective in some situations may not be successful in others. An effect of this is that leaders who are very effective at one place and time may become unsuccessful either when transplanted to another situation or when the factors around them change.
  6. 6. Systems Theory   Where managers examine the workplace and the employees and how they interact with each other.  Basically, the manager looks for common traits amongst all employees and then conducts meetings addressing similar ideas that the employees share.   The goal is to address common problems and concerns in order to make the employees happy and feel appreciated.
  7. 7. Chaos Theory Since change is a constant thing that cannot be avoided, Change leads to having the organization work harder and become more efficient with the new change.  Immediately the company needs to hire new employment and after they are hired, space would have to  become available for the new employees and finances would have to be budget for the new team.  By just adding employees to a new team, many changes must take place.
  8. 8. Theory X and Theory Y This theory involves the way a manager should treat certain employees depending on the work attitude of the employee.   Theory X involves employees that are not as ambitious and need motivation from managers.  However, Theory Y involves employees that are independent and responsible, and are self-motivating.
