Managing in Organizations An organization is a social arrangement for achieving controlled performance to achieve goals that create value (add value to resources). However, the value is subjective. Management occurs whenever people take responsibility for an activity and consciously try to shape its progress and outcomes. Management is the process of coordinating work activities so that they can be performed efficiently and effectively: The efficiency (resources) - get maximum output with minimum input (productivity), “Doing things right!” ; The effectiveness (objectives) - carry out activities in order to achieve the objectives, “Doing the right things!” . Imagine que haja um vazamento de água no escritório da diretoria. O primeiro funcionário, imediatamente, corre atrás de um pano, de um balde e de um rodo para retirar toda a água do ambiente. Ele foi eficiente, pois fez de maneira certa o que deveria ser feito. Poucos tempo depois, o vazamento volta a alagar a sala, e o nosso funcionário volta a correr atrás de um pano, de um balde e de um rodo para retirar toda a água. Essa é a típica descrição de um enxugador de gelo eficiente.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
