Business Pod 3.2 Organisational Behaviour Essay referral version Forsyth Travel has employed Business graduate Lee for a few months now. Lee has started to complain that his ideas are not appreciated or valued and he is not developing his skills as much as he would like. Worse for him is that he is starting to find the work tedious with little variation from day to day, and his motivation is slipping. He finds it hard to arrive to start the working day at 9am which irritates Julia considerably. She feels that her insistence that he leave at 5pm should be reflected in his getting to work on time. He also feels that he wastes valuable time completing a daily work record that Julia feels is invaluable in meeting her need to understand what is happening, especially when she is out of the office. When Julia is away from the office the atmosphere is different and Lee feels more relaxed due to Tim’s more laid back approach, but Julia feels that less work gets done. With new people due to join, the Forsyth Travel team have promoted Lee to Office Manager. Lee is reflecting on Julia and Tim’s emerging management approaches and starting to think about the kind of manager he wants to be. The Task From the viewpoint of a consultant, write an essay of no more than 3,000 words exploring the two schools of thought from the Reading Week 1 Weekly Learning Block on management practices and how Lee might develop his own management style as he starts to manage the new recruits to ensure that they work efficiently and effectively. Notes You are required to write an essay of up to 3,000 words (+ a maximum of 10%) which investigates and critically analyses both the Scientific Management and Human Relations schools of thought, applying both to Lee’s role. You should use referenced third party sources of academic literature for support, analysing the theoretical concepts of Scientific Management and the Human Relations approach. Include referenced examples from modern day organisations to illustrate your discussion. Conclude by considering the application of these two schools of thought to Lee’s role at Forsyth Travel taking into account the type and size of the business. Use the Harvard system for your referencing. Assignment 3.2 Organisational Behaviour Essay Referral Version Page 1 of
