A modern team based structure

Motivation at work may actually have more to do with how tasks are designed and managed than with the personal dispositions of people who do them.11 Hackman and Oldham

Past management practices and past leadership styles are still being applied, even though they are not in touch with the needs of the employees. Teams, rather than traditional structures, create the conditions that motivate people. 14

This structure is also characterized by the elimination of reporting levels and the simultaneous acceptance of additional responsibility by team members. Unlike the matrix structure, the teams and the overall structure itself is permanent. 15

A sure road to failure

But what is a sure road to failure is when you focus on one small part of the picture. 23 Joseph Juran.

You want to sell something, so you try to put it in an attractive package or give it a name that has an attractive sound to it. I see nothing wrong with that. What bothers me is when 90 percent of it is package and 10 percent is substance.So it’s not a case that you do without these things that are offered. But what is a sure road to failure is when you focus on one small part of the picture. 23 Joseph Juran

A great divide

Yet today, a great divide is evident in both the public and private sectors worldwide. Those organizations that are not creating a work environment that provides total stakeholder satisfaction are being outperformed by those that can.

In the past, organizations could survive with poor work environments and without regard to employee needs or total stakeholder satisfaction which includes the satisfaction of worker needs. Yet today, a great divide is evident in both the public and private sectors worldwide.

Monday, the 19th September

A decision by the head of any company, division, or department to systematize the business is in itself an act of leadership. Yet it is an easy, specific step to take – a concrete way of making the will to manage effective in achieving company success.

In deciding to systematize the business, the executive makes two commitments to himself: first, to maintain the will to manage; second, to devote much of his time to building, maintaining, articulating, and supporting the system and to make it effective in action. This means that he will have less time for day-to-day operational decision making. He will have to keep out of the details. He will be forced into a leadership posture. 16 Marvin Bower
