A decision that senior officers in an office should meet regularly as aManagement Committee to draw out plans, review performances and makedecisions collectively, became institutionalised when the members of theCommittee were announced and meetings were held with appropriate minutesof deliberations.The change would become stabilised only when the members get into the habitof studying the subjects on the agenda, coming prepared for a discussion andbeing able to express themselves as equals, regardless of hierarchy, listening toothers, exploring issues, and arriving at consensus decisions to which they willremain committed, without being concerned only with their respectivefunctional areas. The change becomes effective only when it stabilises.In the initial stages, when the new organisation is being created as a viableunit, what will be the style of management?I.Ad hocII.StrategicIII.HierarchicalIV.FormalExample
MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENTCHAPTER 6137IC-90 HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENTExampleExample1.Management developmentManagement development is future oriented. It is not limited to impartingknowledge and operational skills to employees. The focus will be on theparameters of good management like climate, culture, leadership, vision,strategies and so on. Effective managers should have analytical, human,conceptual and specialised skills. But these are not enough. There are otherfactors which affect the commitment of employees at work and which affectthe performance of the organisation as a whole. Management Developmentdeals with such issues.The world is changing at a rapid rate. The ways of doing business are changing.The applications based on new technologies are making traditional concepts ofdoing business outmoded and obsolete. Many new businesses require nothingmore than ideas and the use of applications.Taxi services like Uber and Ola do not own any taxis but are able to providelakhs of taxi rides per day across several towns and countries and generateincomes of a few thousands per day to those taxi owners who are associatedwith them. Travis Kalanick who founded the Uber service in 2009 was rankedNo.4 in the Forbes list of super-rich with a net worth of 6 billion dollars.The business models of many new businesses were unheard of some ten orfifteen years back.A Chinese telephone launched in Delhi on 20th January 2016, sold more than70000 pieces in a few days through Flipkart on the basis of information about itsfeatures published in the Internet. No shop in the country had these sets ondisplay.Management development would seek to ensure that the organisation does notlose out on the changes happening in the environment. It is difficult to catch upwith the new businesses. It is difficult even to anticipate the direction of thenext big change in the business world. The best chance for being able to keepup with the changes would be an HR force which is active and energetic and fullof vitality and willing to contribute to the success of the organisation. Theyhave to be let loose and given the freedom to think and experiment. Traditionalmanagerial styles may inhibit these requirements.
