MINI-CASE ASSIGNMENT #1 – THE 3M ORGANIZATION Question #1: Chester Barnard: He specifies his approach with three systems. The first system is the social system which companies should be able to satisfy the motive of the workers similarly to calling it as a “cooperative arrangement”. The second element connects with first element because it aids with the organization’s objective. Basically, if a company satisfies the motives of its participants and attains its main and common goal/s, the cooperative arrangement among them will last. The third element is the communication system which managers must establish and maintain an effective relationship with employees. Following all three elements, it portrays how 3M’s team leaders perform effective communication by bringing everyone together [all from different expertise] to discuss any problems and together, they can generate solutions. Also, the management at 3M provides bonuses to teams who create a winning product. This allows all employees to work together and feel their actions will be consistent with the needs and desires of the other employees. Mary Parker Follett: Unlike Charles’s approach, the 3M’s organization links closer to Follett’s approach only because it emphasizes on her practice of management. Fallot defined management as “getting things through others”. 3M uses that technique to encourage employees to maximize the production not by force, but through the involvement in coordination and harmonizing group effects. Also, Fallot’s self-management is involved when 3M’s employees get to choose [15 percent of their time] what they want to without the management’s approval. Fallot stress this element along with coordination because the decisions regarding how work should be done is to be made by those performing the tasks not the managers who are not familiar with the task. She emphasizes on the theory of “creative conflict resolution”. This theory connects to 3M’s innovate culture to which both managers and employees are happy as any problems has been resolved per their own desires. Question #2: Today, any businesses are affected by the external forces in the environment due to their competitors. Globally, a change in the business can not only attract customers, but allow business to stay current with industry trends. The ability to change can help any employees in a company by creating opportunities. With the leader-employee relationship, the employee may take imitative of the leadership role by taking additional responsibilities for future promotions. Companies that are proficient at handling change can help in an environment that encourages innovation (ex. 3M’s organization) At the 3M’s organization, the employees who feel that their ideas will be looked at by their manager may be more “willing” to think creatively which can help a company prosper. Looking at the technological effects, companies are updated with the advanced technology. Technology allows companies to do everything so it can get the work done faster and efficiently. Another strength with the technology in companies is the flexibility. With the benefit of technology, most employees are able to work at home with the aid of the advanced technology connected to their company. References Karakowsky, L., & Guriel, N. (2015).
