Φ Basically, its getting what you want (with what you have.) Φ We manage day to day activities all the time. Φ Implies wisdom…but isnt this gained from experience? What if you lack it? Can you still be an effective manager? Well find out! Φ Three approaches (job, resources, problem solving)
Φ Yes, many people liken the job of a manager to the CNS of an animal. Φ If all is running smoothly, then youre on cruise control; if not, then problems arise and solutions may need to be immediately implemented.
Φ Planning-Determining the job to be done Φ Organizing-Defining and dividing workload Φ Staffing-Putting the right person on the right job Φ Directing (leadership)-Getting the most from your workers. Φ Controlling-Maintaining a sense of balance and flow to the operation.
1. Delineate/define each job 2. Delineate/define job-to-job relationships 3. Allocate responsibilities 4. Include challenges 5. Include career ladders 6. Balance support positions 7. Larger ratio of supervisors to workers. (Avoid too-many-chiefs syndrome.)
1. Define problem 2. Gather facts/data 3. Analyze/evaluate facts and data 4. Draw conclusions 5. Take action 6. Accept resposibility 7. Evaluate outcome Rem: Its all about control: standard, measurement, and redirection.
Φ Traditional Model (stick) : Close supervision (micro-managing), chain of command, assumes people must be tightly controlled. Φ Human Relations Model (carrot): Limited participation in overall decisions, happy workers are productive workers. Φ Human Resource Model (esteem): Integration into the process, job enrichment, collaboration.
Φ Management by objective(s) (MBO) is still an overriding factor or aquaculture production/businesses. Φ Is it doable & affordable… Φ Is someone willing to be responsible? Φ Adaptable/time sensitive Φ Negotiable? Non-conflicting? Φ Measureable?
Φ Technical-water use, what to produce, mechanization, production/disease issues Φ Personnel-Staffing, training, productivity, people opportunities Φ Financial-Funding, purchasing, contracting, marketing Φ Accounting-records, business transactions, taxes
