Copyright © 2004 Prentice Hall. All rights reserved.1–15 The Foundations Of Modern Management The Behavioral School The Hawthorne Studies Moved management beyond controlling the behavior solely. Introduced the link between behavior and individual attitudes Found that it was the social situations of the workers, not just the working conditions, that influenced behavior at work.

Brought the “human” in the organization to the forefront
Copyright © 2004 Prentice Hall. All rights reserved.1–16 Douglas McGregor: Theory X and Theory Y Can heavily influence the management approach taken Theory X Most people dislike work and responsibility and prefer to be directed. They are motivated not by the desire to do a good job, but simply by financial incentives. Most people must be closely supervised, controlled, and coerced into achieving organizational objectives. Theory Y People wanted to work hard. People could enjoy work. People could exercise substantial self-control. Managers could trust employees if managers treated them right.

Copyright © 2004 Prentice Hall. All rights reserved.1–18 The Administrative School “Zone of Indifference” A range of orders that a worker will willingly accept without consciously questioning their legitimacy. Managers have to provide sufficient inducements to make each employee’s zone of indifference wider. This assumes you want the worker to just follow orders This can be counterproductive Managerial Influence Use the classicists’ command and control approach. Foster employee self-control by providing better training, encouraging participative leadership, and developing commitment and loyalty.
