16 Some Types of Changes Impacting Organizations:
Products Technologies Markets Speed Requirements Management Techniques 24

17 Pre-Classical Management
Anything before about 1900: e.g., Attila the Hun Henry Towne 3

18 Classical Perspective
Emphasized a rational, scientific approach to study of management and sought to make workers and organizations like efficient operating machines Classical Categories Scientific Management Frederick Taylor Frank and Lillian Gilbreth Bureaucratic Organizations Max Weber Administrative Principles Henri Fayol 3

19 Scientific Management
Develop a standard method for performing each job Select appropriate workers Train workers in standard method Plan work and eliminate interruptions Provide incentives for increased output. 4

20 Bureaucratic Organizations
Clearly defined authority and responsibility Set procedures for each situation Goals of fairness and efficiency Separation of management and ownership i.e., run by professional mgrs. 6

21 Bureaucratic Organizations
Become “dysfunctional” when: -There is no effort to recognize exceptions to rules or to change rules when necessary -Enforcement of rules takes precedence over pursuit of the organization’s mission Relatively High in Bureaucracy: United Parcel Service U.S. Postal Service Relatively Low in Bureaucracy: Hewlett-Packard Disney Studios 6

22 Administrative Management - Henri Fayol
14 Principles Unity of command Division of work Unity of direction Scalar chain-of-command Authority=Responsibility (etc.) Five basic management functions Planning Organizing Commanding Coordinating Controlling 9

23 Humanistic Perspective
Emphasizes enlightened treatment of workers and power sharing between managers and employees. Emphasized satisfaction of employees’ social/psychological needs as the key to increased worker productivity. Supported by Hawthorne Studies 12

24 The Hawthorne Studies “Social Man”
Methodological Problems, but Profound Influence on Management Thought “Hawthorne Effect” Interviewing Techniques 14

25 The Human Resources Perspective
Jobs should be designed to allow workers to use their full potential Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs (Ch. 12) Douglas McGregor’s Theory X vs. Theory Y (comparison of Classical Mgmt to Human Resources) 17

26 Theory Y (Human Resources):
Theory X (Classical): People dislike work and prefer to be directed Must be coerced to work Want to avoid responsibility and have little ambition Want security above everything Theory Y (Human Resources): People will accept responsibility Have intellect that could be applied to organizational goals Only partially use their intellectual potential. 19

27 Behavioral Sciences Approach = Applied Social Sciences
Study of human behavior in organizations Draws on Disciplines of: Economics Psychology Sociology Communication Anthropology 21

28 Management Science Perspective
Involves Mathematics, Computers Examples: Forecasting Inventory control Scheduling Break-even analysis 22

29 Contemporary Approaches
Systems Theory How the parts fit together (“Synergy” is a key concept) How the org. interacts with its environment Understanding systems requires Conceptual Skills Contingency View Integrates many of the other viewpoints “No one best way to manage - the best way depends on the situation” 23

30 Total Quality Management
