Managerial grid presentation

  1. 1. By: Ana Piña Mariana Medina Velia Liévano Adriana Juárez
  2. 2. Dr. Robert R. Blake Blake was born in 1918 He studied psychology at Berea College Died in 2004
  3. 3. Jane Mouton Jane was born in 1930 (Texas) She studied pure mathematics and physics at the University ofTexas Died in 1987
  4. 4. Blake and Mouton set out to apply the ideas of behavioural scientists such as Rensis Likert to the practice of management.
  5. 5.  Blake conducted many leadership studies at the University of Michigan and the Ohio State University.
  6. 6.  At these Universities, Robert Blake and Jane Mouton (1960s) proposed a graphic portrayal of leadership styles through a managerial grid.  The grid depicted two dimensions of leader behavior.
  7. 7.  Concern for People –This is the degree to which a leader considers the needs of team members, their interests, and areas of personal development when deciding how best to accomplish a task.  Concern for Production –This is the degree to which a leader emphasizes concrete objectives, organizational efficiency and high productivity when deciding how best to accomplish a task.
  8. 8.  Leader is concerned about the needs and feelings of members of his/her team.  “As long as team members are happy and secure then they will work hard”.
  9. 9.  “Employees are simply a means to an end”.  Employee needs are always secondary to the need for efficient and productive workplaces.  This type of leader is very autocratic, has strict work rules, policies, and procedures.
  10. 10.  This leader is mostly ineffective.  He/she has neither a high regard for creating systems for getting the job done.  The result is a place of disorganization and dissatisfaction.
  11. 11.  This style seems to be a balance.  It may at first appear to be an ideal compromise.  Leaders who use this style settle for average performance and often believe that this is the most anyone can expect.
  12. 12. Production People
  13. 13.  These leaders stress production needs and the needs of the people equally highly.  Employees are involved in understanding organizational purpose and determining production needs.  When employees are committed to, and have a stake in the organization’s success, their needs and production needs coincide.
  14. 14.  This model is used to help managers analyze their own leadership styles through a technique known as grid training.  This is done by administering a questionnaire that helps managers identify how they stand with respect to their concern for production and people.  The training is aimed at basically helping leaders reach to the ideal state of 9, 9.
  15. 15.  The model ignores the importance of internal and external limits, matter and scenario.  Also, there are some more aspects of leadership that can be covered but are not.
